NABLUS (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian couple were moderately wounded on Friday morning after settlers assaulted them in an olive grove south of Nablus.

Muhammad Rashed Ghazal, 47, told Ma'an he and his wife Hanan Eghbareh, 43, headed to their lands in Ein Makhna, near the Huwwara checkpoint, after prior coordination with Israeli forces.

They found a group of settlers from neighboring Yitzhar harvesting their olives, Ghazal said.

The settlers threw stones and attacked the couple, he said.

Hanan suffered bruising in her head and shoulders, and both were transferred to Rafidia hospital in Nablus for treatment.
