NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was injured on Friday after being attacked by Israeli settlers in Urif village south of Nablus, a Palestinian official said.
Mohammad Ahmad Radi Ibrahim, 33, suffered several fractures after dozens of settlers from Elon Moreh attacked farmers in the village, Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an.
He was taken to Rafidia hospital for treatment.
On Monday, hundreds of Israeli settlers gathered on a main road in the northern West Bank and hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles while shouting "Death to Arabs," witnesses said.
Settlers in the occupied West Bank routinely attack Palestinians and their property.
In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.
More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
