Video: Settlers attack farmers, volunteers at olive harvest

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem on Wednesday released video footage and photos of an Israeli settler attack on Palestinian farmers.

B'Tselem said in a statement that on Oct. 26, masked Israeli settlers approached the Palestinian village of al-Mughayir and attacked the Na'asan family with stones while they were harvesting olives.

"The family responded by throwing stones back," the statement said.

"The settlers then assaulted 75-year-old Ghatib Na'asan and his nephew, Yasser Na'asan, who tried to protect him. The latter, a volunteer..., was hit with an iron bar and broken glass. His head and hand were injured." more
