In Jenin, local sources said that settlers were throwing rocks at passing cars on the Nablus-Jenin road and attacked the driver of a concrete truck, Saleh Abu Mashaykh, and his colleague Ala’ Abu al-Rabb at the south entrance of Fahma village south of Jenin. Both Mashaykh and al-Rabb were both left with bruises on their heads.

Settlers from Beit Eil, near Ramallah in the central West Bank, assaulted Rula al-Qawasmi, a 36-year-old woman on the road from Bir Zeit to al-Jalzoun refugee camp.

Osama al-Qawasmi, the victim’s brother and Fatah spokesman, said that the settlers pelted his car with stones and then attacked Rula with sticks, causing the injuries that required Rula to be taken to the hospital in Ramallah.

In Hebron, a car driven by a settler near the Kiryat Arba settlement close to the Old City of Hebron struck three-year-old Bissam al-Ja’bari as he played near his house. There are no other details about the incident.

Four Palestinians were arrested in midnight military raids in the southern West Bank. According to Palestinian state-run news wire Wafa, the detained were Tamer al-Haymouni, 25, who was arrested in his home Hebron after Israeli troops threw tear gas canisters and sound bombs into the house, Nidal al-Za’qeeq, 19, Muhammad al-Za’qeeq, 16, and Shahdeh Adi, 18, all from Beit Omar.
