Hebron: Spitting in Babies Faces

At approximately 2 pm (the 6th August) two internationals observed a group of 6 Israeli settler girls between the ages of 12 and 18 harassing and intimidating Palestinian residents as they walked along a Palestinian road in Tel Rumada. They were observed spitting in the face of a baby being carried by a family member, and insulting Palestinians with language so abusive that a soldier attempted to remove them from the area. The soldier was immediately chastised by his commanding officer, and the girls continued to walk along the road unabated, threatening residents by lunging and stamping as if about to hit them.
