images_News_2013_04_30_settlers02_300_0[1]NABLUS, TULKAREM, (PIC)– Hundreds of Israeli settlers have attacked on Tuesday morning Palestinian citizens and their properties in Nablus and Tulkarem following the killing of a settler at Za’atara checkpoint earlier today.

A group of settlers assaulted schoolgirls who were riding 2 buses on a school trip, injuring 50 pupils, near Hawarah checkpoint, south of Nablus, where they were transferred to hospital, eyewitnesses confirmed.

The sources added that the settlers detained the buses and tried to set fire to them.

Local media sources pointed that masked and armed settlers burned tires at road junctions in Nablus and hurled stones at Palestinian cars, where dozens of vehicles were damaged.

Meanwhile, settlers from Givat Gilad settlement set fire to dozens of olive trees in the Nablus village of Firata, and attacked vehicles east of Tulkarem.

On the other hand, the occupation forces, stationed in military Watchtowers near Za’atara checkpoint, detained about a thousand people at the checkpoint south of Nablus after they closed the area.

Israeli forces raided Dahiyet Shweikeh village in Tulkarem and stormed the house of the wounded Palestinian who stabbed the settler at Za’atara military checkpoint, south of Nablus.

Eyewitnesses said that forces from the Israeli army raided the village and surrounded the house of Salam Al-Zaghal who was injured after Israeli soldiers shot him at Za’atara checkpoint.

The occupation forces closed Za’atara checkpoint in Nablus, the Israeli radio confirmed, referring to the death of one of the settlers from Yitzhar settlement, while Salam Al-Zaghal was transferred to hospital within the 48-occupied territories.

In the same context, Al-Zaghal family confirmed that Salam is still alive at a military hospital and denied his martyrdom until this moment.

Sources confirmed that many Palestinians including students were injured due to the settlers’ attacks in the area, while the occupation forces assaulted the citizens and prevented them from passing through Hawara and Za’atara checkpoints.

In the meantime, Israeli soldiers expelled on Tuesday Palestinian citizens stopping at the station waiting near the “Gush Etzion” settlement built on Palestinian land north of al-khalil under the pretext of protecting the settlers following the killing of a settler near the village of Za’atara, south of Nablus. .

Eyewitnesses said that the Israeli occupation forces reinforced their presence near the junction that led to several outposts and settlements in al-Khalil and Bethlehem.

According to Israeli media outlets, the Palestinian has stabbed and killed an Israeli settler from Yitzhar settlement after the settler attempted to assault him.
