Six Palestinians injured in settlers' attack north of Ramallah
Israeli settlers attack Palestinians in the town of Sinjil, north of Ramallah, wounding one with gunfire, while others suffered from bruises and fractures.
A citizen was wounded in his hand by gunfire and five others suffered from bruises and fractures on Thursday, as settlers attacked them in the town of Sinjil, north of Ramallah, while under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces.
Under the protection of the occupation army, about 20 masked and armed settlers fired live bullets and beat a number of citizens who attempted to reach their lands in the Rafid area to plant olive trees after settlers bulldozed them to seize them a few days ago.
The injuries included five with multiple fractures, two elderly citizens with bruises, the mayor of Sinjil Moataz Tawafasha, members of the municipal council, and a Palestinian with a live bullet in his hand. The settlers attacked the property of citizens and completely destroyed five cars.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said its crews attended to two who were attacked by a group of settlers in the village of Sinjil, noting that the Israeli occupation prevented its crews and ambulances from reaching the attack site, forcing them to walk to attend to the wounded.
The Israeli occupation soldiers fired live bullets, sound bombs, and poisonous tear gas at the citizens who tried to confront the settlers' attack, which led to confrontations at the town's entrance.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced on Wednesday that Younis Ghassan Tayeh, 21, was shot dead by the occupation during confrontations that erupted with the Israeli occupation forces in the Fara’a camp in the city of Tubas.
The Ministry of Health said the martyr Younis was hit by a bullet straight to the heart, fired by the occupation forces in Al-Fara'a camp in the Tubas governorate.
Palestinian youths confronted the Israeli occupation forces during their raid of the camp, according to local sources.
