Israeli settlers attacked a group of Palestinian farmers outside the West Bank city of Nablus Wednesday afternoon. According to Israeli NGO Rabbis from Human Rights, the settlers came from the direction of a newly-established settler outpost, Megini Ha’aretz, not far from where the farmers were tending their fields.

The incident came to an end after Rabbis for Human Rights field worker Zacharia Sada intervened on behalf of the farmers. Soldiers who arrived on the scene detained one of the attackers for questioning. No one was injured.
