انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون
الله يرحم كل الشهداء
NABLUS, (PIC) Fadi Zaitoun, from the village of Beita, south of Nablus, died late Thursday evening of injuries he sustained when his tractor crashed on its side as he was being chased by Jewish settlers from Yitzhar.
Eyewitnesses said that Zaitoun was on his tractor ploughing village land when settlers from the nearby settlement of Yitzhar started chasing him. As he tried to flee on his tractor, the tractor crashed on its side and he was critically injured. He was taken to Rafidya hospital in Nablus, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Yitzhar is notorious for its extremist settlers. It was a rabbi from Yitzhar who co-authored the “Handbook for the killing of Gentiles” in which he said that it was permissible to kill Palestinian children, so that they do not grow to be “terrorists like their parents.”
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation authorities declared a closure on the West Bank starting midnight Thursday till mid-night Saturday because of the Jewish Passover holiday.
