i24 News – Israeli settlers on Friday attacked Palestinian farmers and pro-Palestinian Israeli activists near the West Bank city of Nablus, wounding at least six.

Some 30 activists from the group Rabbis for Human Rights arrived to bring agricultural equipment to the Palestinian farmers when a group of masked settlers emerged from a nearby outpost hurling stones and battered them with wooden sticks.

The assailants also torched a vehicle belonging to one of the farmers.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops and police who arrived at the scene chased the settlers away but made no arrests.
