AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Jewish settlers instilled terror during several riots in the southern West Bank city of Al-Khalil on Saturday night.

They set fire to a Palestinian man’s car and inflicted injuries on a child and caused other damages.

Settlers made repeated attacks on several Palestinian homes near the Ramat Yishai settlement in the Tel Rumeida area, breaking the windows of homes and setting fire to a parked car, witnesses reported, adding that present Israeli soldiers did nothing to curb the violence.

More attacks took place near the Kiryat Arba and Kharsina settlements to the east of the city.

Women settlers also staged a small protest on the streets of Al-Khalil shouting demands for death to Arabs and Palestinians.

According to locals in Beit Ummar, near Al-Khalil, more than 250 settlers attacked near town limits and threw stones at Palestinian homes. The Israeli army protected them and fired tear gas causing a small child to sustain breathing difficulties after inhaling it.

He was later taken to the city hospital for treatment.

More settlers attacked homes in the Al-Aroub refugee camp on the main road linking the cities of Al-Khalil and Bethlehem.
