Dozens of armed Israeli settlers attack Palestinian-owned property in Hebron

At least 40 armed Israeli settlers attacked yesterday night Palestinian properties, owned by local Palestinians in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Witnesses said that the settlers punched wheels of parking cars, smashed windows of houses and hurled stones at Palestinian houses.

Israeli media sources reported that the Israeli army chief of the middle area in the West Bank had earlier met with the settlers leaders, calling on them to evacuate a Palestinian house, the Israeli high court ordered its eviction.

However, the settlers did not comply and vandalized the neighborhood, where the said house is located.

The Palestinian Hebron Reconstruction Committee had succeeded in extracting the said high court’s ruling after settlers took over the house of Alrejbi family in Hebron in March2007.

Owner of the Palestinian building, Fayez Alrejby, has repeatedly appealed to the court, since his building was confiscated by the Israeli settlers.

Currently, there are more than 400 Israeli settlers in the West Bank city of Hebron, which has been widely known as a flashpoint between Palestinian residents and settlers, despite heavy presence of the Israeli military.
