Settlers ‘install fence’ at Palestinian home

March 25, 2011

TUBAS (Ma’an) — Settlers from the illegal settlement of Miskiyut, protected by Israeli soldiers, installed a barbed wire fence around a Palestinian home on Thursday.

The settlers barred residents from moving inside or outside the house while installing the fence around the barns of sheep and cows there, according to Palestinian and international peace activists who were also barred from the home.

The owner of the house, Nabil Mutawe, told Ma’an that settlers made death threats against his family.

Head of the village council of Al-Beida Mustafa Al-Fuqaha appealed to human rights organizations to urgently intervene to rescue the family noting that the settlers had previously attacked Palestinians in the area.
