Israeli settlers threw stones at a Palestinian car driving at Ramallah-Nablus Road in the occupied West Bank, leaving the driver seriously injured, Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Settlers from the illegal West Bank settlement of Shiloh reportedly attacked the Palestinian car just after midnight, causing the 26-year-old driver multiple skull fractures. 

He was transferred to a Ramallah-based hospital for medical treatment.
According to B’Tselem, the Israeli information center for human rights, Israeli authorities are have a relatively inactive approach in their response to Israeli crimes against Palestinians.

“The undeclared policy of the Israeli authorities in response to these attacks is lenient and conciliatory. Perpetrators are rarely tried, and many cases are not investigated at all or are closed with no operative conclusions,” said B’Tselem.
