Israeli settlers attack civilian homes in Al-Khalil

Sep 15,2019

The settlers were protected by the Israeli occupation forces when they attacked the Palestinian homes.

Extremist Israeli Jewish settlers on Saturday night attacked with rocks and bottles Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

Palestine Post 24reporter said that dozens of extremist Israeli Jewish settlers descended from the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, protected by Israeli forces, threw rocks and glass bottles at civilian homes in the neighbourhood of Al-Hareeqa in the Palestinian city.

The reporter also said that the Jewish settlers smashed glass windows and chanted racist slogans, terrorising children and families.

Some 800 Israeli Jewish settlers live in the occupied city of Al-Khalil, which is home of over 200,000 Palestinians.

Harassment of Palestinians in that area is repeated almost everywhere, particularly following the departure of the international monitoring team in February when Israel refused to extend their mandate.

Citizens of the neighbourhood called on international and rights groups to urgently interfere to put an end to the Israeli government-supported settler terrorism and to provide protection for them.
