On Saturday, Israeli settlers attacked several citizens in the city of Hebron and the nearby town of Yatta.

An eyewitness reported that Nassar Mohammad al- Rajabi was wounded and suffered bruising to various parts of his body after being pelted with stones in al-Sahla region, in the old city of Hebron.

He added that the Carmel settlers attacked the residents of Um al-Khair region, hurled stones at them and threatened to continue to carry out a number of attacks to force the residents out of the area.

The illegal settlement of Carmel is located to the east of Yatta village.

Mu’tasim al-Hathalin, from the village of Khirbet Um Al-Kheir which is adjacent to Carmel settlement, said that a number of residents were repeatedly attacked by the Israeli settlers.

He voiced an appeal to human rights organizations to intervene to stop the ongoing violations, and provide the local residents with protection, particularly in the areas adjacent to the settlement and the apartheid wall.
