HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian residents, including an elderly man, while Israeli forces raided two houses, in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on predawn Sunday.

A local resident, Mufid al-Sharbati, told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided and thoroughly searched his house, as well as the house of his brother, Zeidan al-Sharbati, on al-Shuhada Street in the city of Hebron.

Imad Abu Shamsieh, Coordinator of the Human Rights Defenders, also told Ma'an that the group of Israeli settlers stormed the home of resident, Bassam Abu Aisha, and the home of an elderly man from the Abu Aisha family, as well as assaulted other residents of the two houses.

Dozens of Israeli forces were deployed to the area and closed off the entrances to the neighborhood of Tel Rumeida and al-Shuhada Street, in the center of Hebron, preventing the residents from any movement.

This resulted after groups of Israeli settlers stormed the neighborhood of Tel Rumeida, under the protection of Israeli forces.

Palestinian youths warned the residents of Tel Rumeida, Wad al-Husain, and the Kiryat Arba area against the presence of groups of Israeli settlers outside the city of Hebron, who were organizing a demonstration demanding the Palestinian residents of the area to leave their homes.

Palestinian residents of the Old City of Hebron face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 32 permanent and partial checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets.

Additionally, Palestinians are not allowed to drive on al-Shuhada street, have had their homes and shops on the street welded shut, and in some areas of the Old City, are not permitted to walk on certain roads.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers move freely on the street, drive cars, and carry machine guns.
