HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian residents of Hebron City in the southern occupied West Bank, late Wednesday.

Local sources told Ma'an that Israeli settlers stormed the al-Shuhada Street in the center of Hebron City and broke into a Palestinian home, identified as belonging to Ishaq Ramadan.

Israeli settlers reportedly attacked Ramadan's daughters after breaking into their home.

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, they are not permitted to walk on certain roads.

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