Settlers attack civilians in Hebron

HEBRON, Sunday, Extremist Israeli settlers last night attacked a number of Palestinians in Tell Rumeida neighborhood in Hebron city, south of the West Bank, according to local sources.

WAFA correspondent said settlers from illegal Ramat Yeshai and Beit Hadasa settlements assaulted the civilians with attack dogs as well as beat up some of them without the Israeli army doing anything to stop them.

At least one Palestinian civilian was injured in his face as a result of the attack. He was moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

Violence by extremist Jewish settlers has been on the rise for the past four days. On Friday night, a 48-year-old Palestinian mother of eight was killed when Israeli settlers threw rocks at the car she was in with her husband on a northern West Bank road.

The woman, Aisha Muhammad Rabi, was hit in the head by a stone thrown at the car she was in on a road south of Nablus. Her husband was moderately injured.
