Eng401NABLUS (PNIC):-Israeli settlers assaulted a Palestinian farmer, while he was harvesting olives, on Monday, in Deir al-Hatab village, east of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

Abed al-Karim Hussein, head of the Deir al-Hatab village council, told PNIC that a group of Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Elon Moreh assaulted a Palestinian farmer by repeatedly beating him.

The farmer was identified as Amjad Khaled Odeh, 45, a resident from the Deir al-Hatab village.
Hussein confirmed that Odeh was assaulted while harvesting olives in his land, that is adjacent to the Elon Moreh settlement, east of the village.

Odeh suffered various bruises all over his body.

The Israeli human rights group B'Tselem reported that "settler violence and vandalism takes place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. Sometimes soldiers take part in the assault; at other times, they stand idly by. The police makes no substantial effort to investigate the incidents, nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real time."

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
