CPTer Attacked in Tuwanni

On Sunday, settlers from Havot Ma'On beat CPTer Joel Gulledge with a rock and a video camera as he accompanied children to a summer camp. A masked settler approached the 14 children and two CPTers and began throwing stones with a slingshot while other settlers came from another direction. The children ran away unharmed, but Gulledge, who was filming the attack, was caught and beaten. Pictures and a more complete description are here.

Settler attacks in the West Bank have been particularly ruthless over the last few weeks, including setting fire to a house in Burin, rocket attacks from a settlement near Nablus, and an attack near Samua' where a man was tied to pole and beaten.
