NABLUS (AFP) - Israeli settlers opened fire in the northern West Bank on Thursday wounding two Palestinians in separate incidents, Palestinian security forces and witnesses said. The Israeli military confirmed “clashes” between Palestinians and Israeli settlers in the two locations, but said they had no information on settler gunfire or Palestinian casualties. The first incident occurred on the edge of the Yitzhar settlement, near the Palestinian city of Nablus. Palestinian sources said a group of Palestinians from a neighbouring village were playing in the snow near Yitzhar when settlers opened fire at them. Tariq al-Safadi, 22, was hit in the leg and taken to hospital in Nablus, security sources said.
