Hebron, 4th November – A Palestinian man is in critical condition after being shot in the stomach as settlers continue to riot through Hebron.
At least seventeen Palestinians have been taken to hospital injured as settlers set fire to several Palestinian homes. Four were injured as settlers opened fire into Palestinian houses.
Hosni Abu Saither has been taken to Aila Government Hospital after he was shot in the stomach during an attack by Israeli settlers who rioted following the eviction. He is currently in a critical condition.
Settlers have also broken into and are occupying a Palestinian property in Hebron’s Old City.
Mobs of settlers stormed through Hebron following the eviction of the Rajabi house today, causing many injuries and widespread damage. Several Palestinian homes were torched, as well as around 20 cars.
International solidarity activists are maintaining a presence in Hebron, staying with Palestinian families that live in the immediate vicinity of the occupied house and who have been the focus for the settler attacks. The internationals report that Israeli soldiers have made Hebron a Closed Military Zone, but are unwilling to confront the violent settlers.
Settlers reported to the media that they have called on supporters to engage in a week long campaign following their eviction. “We will choose the time and place to retaliate,” they were quoted as saying in Ynet.
