NABLUS, (PIC)– A Palestinian man sustained fractures in his shin and arm after Jewish settlers brutally assaulted him Sunday night near the Maale Ephraim settlement east of Nablus city.

The victim Emad Hosni Salahat, 47, was transported to the Rafidya Hospital in Nablus following the attack.

Separately, other settlers have destroyed a water spring in the village of Madama south of Nablus, locals reported.

Some twenty settlers broke the pipes supplying the village with water Sunday afternoon, witnesses from the village said.

The Israeli occupation army arrived after the saboteurs had withdrawn.

The same day, settlers were seen leveling land and digging on private property in the village of Massha, Salfit province, as they paved the way to expand the nearby Eits Ephraim settlement.

The digging took place in an area known as Bat Abu Erzeq west of the town and covered more than 100,000 sq meters, Massha mayor Nidal Amir said.

Settlers have taken 95 per cent of the village’s land since the separation wall was erected in 2004, as settlers began building roads linking isolated settlement communities, turning the village into an isolated locality.
