Israeli settlers attack Palestinian homes in Hebron
Extremist Israeli settlers have attacked Palestinian homes in the West Bank city of Hebron.
Palestinian sources said dozens of settlers surrounded Palestinian homes and threw stones and empty bottles into the houses.
Witnesses said the settlers cursed the Palestinian residents.
Israeli forces were present at the time of the attack, with Palestinians saying that they refused to intervene and stop the settlers.
The forces, however, arrested a number of Palestinians.
Israeli settlers in the West Bank have often assaulted Palestinians and vandalized their properties, cars, mosques and olive trees. However, Tel Aviv rarely detains the assailants.
On Saturday, Israeli forces clashed with activists protesting in East Al Quds to mark the eve of the 38th anniversary of Land Day.
Land Day demonstrations commemorate the killing of six Palestinian protesters by Israeli forces during mass protests against Tel Aviv’s 1976 plans to expropriate Arab land in the Galilee region.
