Settlers pepper-spray rights activists in West Bank

Settlers from a West Bank settlement attacked volunteers helping Palestinian olive farmers on Monday, the Rabbis for Human Rights group said, providing a video showing the incident.

A Rabbis for Human Rights activist was injured and required medical treatment in the attack, which came as he helped out with the olive harvest in the West Bank town of Awarta. According to the organization, the assailants were from the settlement of Itamar.

The attackers arrived on foot and quadbikes, then pepper-sprayed volunteers working with the Palestinians, according to the rights group, whose volunteers said Israeli security forces were present at the scene, but barely intervened.
