IMEMC & Agencies: A number of extremist Israeli settlers chased, on Saturday at noon, a Palestinian child while on his family’s land in Ertas village, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Mohammad Brejeyya, coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in the Bethlehem District, stated that a number of settlers chased Qassem ‘Ayesh, 12 years of age, in Khallet an-Nahla area, while in his family’s land.

Seeking protection, the child ran to his uncle who was working in the family’s land, and the settlers left the scene.

Brejeyya said similar attacks have escalated against the Palestinians, and their lands, adding that the settlers recently installed a tent, and prevented families from entering their own lands despite the fact that the families managed to achieve a ruling from an Israeli court for the removal of the settlers from their lands.

In related news, a number of settlers attacked, on Sunday at dawn, the car of Tulkarem Governor, Abdullah Kamil, as he was returning to the district. The attack took place near the Jeet Junction.

Kamil said the settlers are practicing “organized acts of terror”, and held the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu responsible for the latest escalation, including the Wednesday abduction and brutal murder of Mohammad Abu Khdeir, 16, who was kidnapped and burnt to death, by Israeli fanatics in occupied Jerusalem.

On Friday at night, fanatic settlers kidnapped a young Palestinian man from Osarin village, south of Nablus, and beat him nearly to death in addition to stabbing him.
