Three Palestinians were injured after their vehicles were allegedly attacked by Jewish settlers near the village of Mughayir located north of Ramallah on Wednesday, according to the Palestinian WAFA news agency.
Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority (PA) official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told WAFA that settlers threw stones at the vehicle, causing it to overturn, injuring a man seriously and causing moderate injuries to his child.
Another Palestinian from Duma was lightly injured when stones shattered the windows of his vehicle.
