In video - Israeli settlers perform religious rituals in Hebron villages

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers stormed two Palestinian villages in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on Friday.

Locals said that Israeli settlers raided the Khirbet Umm Nir village, south of Yatta in southern Hebron district, and the village of Susiya, in the same district.

Sources added that Israeli settlers performed Jewish religious rituals while in the area and called for the displacement of Palestinian people from their lands.

Visits by Israeli Jews to areas under Palestinian control across the West Bank often cause tensions with locals, as these visits are accompanied by large armed escorts.

The video below shows Palestinian villagers standing by while Israeli settlers perform Jewish rituals on their lands:
