Palestinian man stabbed by Israeli settler west of Bethlehem

Palestinian man stabbed near Bethlehem

A Palestinian man was stabbed Sunday afternoon by an Israeli settler near Beitar Illit settlement illegally built west of Bethlehem to the south of occupied West Bank.

Local sources affirmed that an Israeli settler stabbed and wounded a Palestinian, confirmed to be from the area, before fleeing the scene.

No further information was given about his health condition.

Settlers have systematically created new outposts using violence or threats against local Palestinians, with the outposts then protected and retroactively legalized by Israeli authorities.

Decades of state-supported settlement expansion and settler violence have led the Palestinians to repeatedly demand international protection.
