A horde of extremist Jewish settlers on Saturday brutalized Palestinian farmers and assaulted an elderly man in southern Nablus.

Local official Ghassan Daghlas said that settlers from the illegal settlement of Esh Kodesh attacked farmers as they were working their lands in the east of Jalud village and expelled them from the area at gunpoint.

Daghlas added that the same settlers also beat an elderly man and injured him in the presence of Israeli soldiers.

He also said that the settlers removed electricity poles on the road between Jalud and Qusra town.
