Israeli settlers attack Palestinian vehicles in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers showered Palestinian vehicles with rocks, on Sunday afternoon, that were passing on road 60, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, east of the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

According to local sources, a group of Israeli settlers from the Kiryat Arba settlement threw rocks towards Palestinian vehicles, which were forced to stop along the road for their own safety.

Sources added that Israeli soldiers and police were present in the area, however, did not intervene.

No injuries were reported.

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.

According to a report by the Israeli rights group B'Tselem, "Settler violence and vandalism takes place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. Sometimes soldiers take part in the assault; at other times, they stand idly by. The police makes no substantial effort to investigate the incidents, nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real time."
