A group of Zionist settlers attacked a Palestinian family on Saturday near a settlement outpost in the occupied West Bank, a rights group said.

According to footage by B’Tselem, about 10 Zionist settlers, some of them masked and carrying batons, approached the Alayan family near the Mitzpe Yair settlement and threw rocks at them.

The Palestinian family members were heard screaming at the settlers, and subsequent pictures showed the father, Said Alayan, carried on a stretcher with a bloodied, bandaged face.

The father was moderately injured and his wife, who recorded the images, suffered from a light injury, the official Palestinian news agency, Wafa, said.

The family owns the land and they go there every Saturday, fearing the settlers will seize it to extend the outpost in southern al-Khalil.
