*The settlers arrested were released after two hours, the Palestinian man was released Monday night*
Four Palestinian women, two children and a human rights activist were injured on Saturday evening at the southern West Bank city of Hebron after they were assaulted by Israeli settlers from the Qiryat Arba colony.
Residents said the settlers pelted stones at the Palestinian homes in the areas of Wadi An-Nasara and Wadi Abu Hussain, which are close to the settlement.
Bassam Al-Ja’bari, a local resident, told Ma’an’s, “The settlers attacked us and beat a human rights activist, Isa Amr, who works for the Israeli humanitarian organization B’Tselem. Then the soldiers arrested him and took him to unknown destination.”
He added that four women and two children were injured and they could not be evacuated to the hospital because Israeli soldiers prevented an ambulance from reaching the area.
