Israeli forces detain one Palestinian, settlers assault residents in Tel Rumeida

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a young Palestinian from the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, while Israeli settler assaulted Palestinian residents, on Wednesday evening.

Locals said that Israeli forces detained one Palestinian and identified him as Abed Nidal al-Fakhouri from the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron’s Old City.

Sources added that al-Fakhouri was detained after he was assaulted by Israeli settlers and soldiers.

Meanwhile, Israeli extremist settler and politician, Baruch Marzel, assaulted and attacked residents of the neighborhood.

Following the attack, several more Israeli settlers attempted to raid Palestinian houses in the area before verbal quarrels erupted between locals and Israeli settlers.

Coordinator of the Human Rights Defenders, Imad Abu Shamsieh, told Ma’an that tensions raised in the neighborhood of Tel Rumeida following Marzel's attack against residents.

Earlier this month, groups of Israeli settlers stormed Tel Rumeida and attacked Palestinian residents, including assaulting an elderly man, while Israeli forces raided two houses.

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.
