A Palestinian family driving near the illegal West Bank outpost of Homesh last night was attacked by a group of Israelis, the father of the family tells the Kan public broadcaster.

According to the man, four Israelis opened the door of their car after it stopped near a checkpoint, and pepper-sprayed him, his wife, and his infant son.

The child was taken to a medical center near Jenin for treatment, the man tells the network.

According to Kan, soldiers at the checkpoint did not see the incident.
