AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Jewish armed settlers assisted Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in quelling a peaceful demonstration in Beit Ummar village, north of Al-Khalil, on Sunday to protest continued confiscation of Palestinian land and settlement activity.

Local sources said that settlers from Karmi Tzur and Beit Ayin assaulted the participants in the demonstration and unleashed their dogs against them.

The witnesses said that among the participants were Arab and foreign solidarity activists.

They added that IOF soldiers attacked the marchers and violently dispersed them triggering fistfights between them and the demonstrators.
