Jewish Settlers Storm Palestinian Homes in Hebron

A group of Jewish settlers yesterday raided two Palestinian buildings in Hebron (Al-Khalil) Old City, in the south of the occupied West Bank, locking them from the inside, Ma’an news agency reported.

Reporting the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee, Quds Press said that the homes in the buildings are owned by Palestinian families Arafa, Al-Hamour, Zaheda, and Al-Shurbati.

The two old houses, Ma’an reported the Committee saying, are adjacent to the illegal settlement complex of Avraham Avino in the heart of the Old City.

The committee’s General Director Imad Hamdan said:

Meanwhile, he said that the settlers use equipment from the occupation forces, which Hamdan said is an effort to enable the settlers to reach the Palestinian buildings.

Today, the settlers enter these buildings and leave them again, he said.

He noted that the Israeli occupation authorities turn a blind eye to the illegal activities of settlers.
