Hebron experiences more settler violence

1st April 2010 | International Solidarity Movement / Ma’an News Agency

According to Ma’an News Agency, in the past 48 hours the residents of Hebron have suffered a number of attacks by settlers. On Thursday a three year old girl was hospitalised in a hit-an-run attack by a settler car, outside the Al-Ibrahimi Mosque. Witnesses apparently report that the Israeli army was present at the time of the incident. This is the third time in March that Israeli settlers have hit Palestinians in their cars before fleeing the scene. Also on Thursday, settlers destroyed the contents of a store in the Jaber neighborhood and damaged a Palestinian home in Tel Rumeida in central Hebron. Today settlers also set fire to the front of a shop on Shalala Street.
