NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian farmer in Nablus on Wednesday on suspicion of attempting to stab a settler after a group assaulted him and cut down his olive trees.

Palestinian security officials told Ma'an that settlers from Maale Levona assaulted Khalid Samih Daraghmah and his son while they were tending their trees south of Nablus near al-Lubban ash-Sharqiyah.

Jalal Daraghmah, 19, was brutally beaten during the attack.

The farmers filed a complaint at the Palestinian liaison department, who referred it to the Israeli office.

After reporting the assault, Israeli forces arrested Samih Daraghmah after claiming he had tried to stab one of the settlers.

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.

O Israel! You're letting extremist,racist,bigotted Zionism dig Israel's own grave...deeper...deeper! But,keep it up! Protect those who'd REALLY destroy Israel from within i.e. your own shipped-in"facts on the ground"(who don't even know WHAT Judaism,or Israel,is).Shas-Kach-Lieberman trash you use as proxy-Nazi's for Ashkenazim gain.No wonder Israel's army has the HIGHEST self-inflicted pre&post trauma suicide rate of all.Totally screwed up!DEFENSE is a human right,like FREEDOM,Palestine!

How dare that Palestinian not allow the settlers to carry out the assault on him. Well done IOF: no Palestinian should be allowed to defend himself from settlers who are only doing what all good thugs have done throughout history.
