Palestine: Israeli soldiers assault Palestinians south of Hebron

6th Jan 2014

IMEMC & Agencies: Saturday evening, Israeli soldiers violently assaulted several Palestinians in Um Al-Kheir village, east of Yatta, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Rateb Jabour, coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Hebron, stated that dozens soldiers invaded the village and attacked several residents.
Two of the attacked Palestinians have been identified as Hajj Suleiman Al-Hathaleen and Sofian Al-Hathaleen.

The soldiers said that they invaded the village because Israeli settlers, of the nearby Karmiel illegal settlement, “were annoyed” with noises coming from the village’s bakery.

Jabour said that, nearly a month ago, settlers demolished a clay oven that belongs to members of the Al-Hathaleen family, despite an Israeli High Court order against its destruction.

The clay oven provides bread for more than 40 residents in the village.

In related news, Israeli settlers placed several mobile homes in the Tal Romeida neighborhood after bulldozing a land that belongs to members of the Abu Haikal family.

The land, planted with almond trees, is nearly 5 Dunams (1.23 Acres).

Abdul-Hady Kantash, a Palestinian expert in maps and Israeli settlements, said that the settlers aim at expanding the Ramat Yishai illegal outpost.
