Red Cross condemns alleged settler attack on its workers

The International Committee of the Red Cross issues a statement condemning an alleged assault on three of the group’s workers by Israeli settlers in the West Bank.

“ICRC staff were attacked with pepper spray by Israeli settlers during a joint field visit with Palestinian farmers and IDF officials in the area of Burin town south of Nablus. IDF officials present on the ground escorted ICRC staff to their military base, where they provided first aid,” the statement says.

“This is not the 1st time ICRC staff are aggressed while carrying out their work in the West Bank,” the Red Cross adds.
