A masked Israeli attacked a Palestinian man on Friday in the West Bank, lightly wounding him, the man's daughter said.

His daughter told Haaretz her father was attacked using a metal bar while on farmland owned by their family, which is located near the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba. The Palestinian was rushed to the Princess Alia Governmental Hospital in Hebron suffering a head injury, the daughter added.

On Thursday, Palestinians reported that a group of Jewish settlers blocked their route at the intersection leading to the Palestinian village of Duma and pepper-sprayed them. "My two-month-old baby sat in his mother's lap," Said Amar who was in the car. "The settlers banged on the car with their hands, yelled in Hebrew and then sprayed into the vehicle." The child required a medical assistance after inhaling pepper spray, he added.

Meanwhile, Jewish settlers reported Thursday that their cars were pelted with stones while on the Eastern West Bank area. Their cars were damaged but no injuries were reported.

Last Friday, two Israeli left-wing activists were lightly wounded after a settler pelted their car with stones while they were on their way to protest the eviction of some 1,000 Palestinians from the Masafer Yatta region in the West Bank.
