Jewish settlers escorted by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked the village of Irak Burin, south of Nablus city, on Saturday, local sources reported.

The sources said that the heavily armed settlers came from the nearby Brakha settlement and attacked their village.

They added that IOF soldiers backed the settlers in confrontations with the villagers, who were defending their village.

The sources noted that a number of citizens suffered breathing problems when the IOF soldiers used tear gas bombs, adding that the settlers have been routinely attacking the village over the past few weeks.
