Security sources: Settlers attack Palestinian village Jalud

January 2, 2013 23:27

Some 20 settlers entered the Palestinian village of Jalud near the Esh Kodesh outpost on Wednesday night, threw stones at windows and attacked a child, according to security sources.

The child was lightly injured and taken to the hospital.

Incidents such as this, a security source said, are viewed very seriously. They undermine safety in the area, and divert the IDF and Border Police’s attention, a source said.

The source noted that the IDF was still investigating the incident, which stemmed from a land dispute between the Esh Kodesh outpost and nearby Palestinian villages, including Jalud.
