Local sources in Hebron city, in the southern part of the West Bank, reported that one resident was injured in his face after he was attacked by a group of violent settlers in Tal Romeida area near the center of the city. The assailant are residents of the Ramat Yishai illegal settlement outpost, in the center of Hebron. Resident Hana' Abu Haikal, said that she saw at least twenty settlers attacking several Palestinian homes and throwing stones at them. One resident, identified as Hisham Al Azza, 45, was injured in his face after being hit with a stone hurled by the settlers at his house. Abu Haikal added that the settlers, for the third time in less than two weeks, sabotaged water pipes providing several Palestinian houses with drinking water while Israeli troops intensively deployed in the area did not attempt to stop them.
There is a big military camp in the area, but soldiers and despite of their intensive military presence, did not attempt to stop the settlers from attacking the Palestinian residents and their properties, and did not even arrest of file charges against them.
