QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Wednesday attacked cars carrying a senior Palestinian Authority security official and injured an officer in the northern West Bank, the security commander said.

Major General Ibrahim Hneihin told Ma'an that his vehicle and another car were driving on the road between Ramallah and Tulkarem near Shilo settlement when local settlers started shooting at them and pelted the cars with stones.

The security commander for the Tulkarem district said one of his entourage Suleiman Abed Rabbo was injured and taken to hospital.

Hneihin said he lodged an official complaint with Israeli liaison officials who arrived at the scene.

The UN humanitarian affairs unit said Tuesday that five Palestinian were killed and 1,000 injured by settlers or security forces in incidents related to the settlements during the year.

Two children were among those killed, and nearly a fifth of all injuries were suffered by under-18s, UN OCHA said.
