Israeli settlers perform religious rituals near Hebron

April 24, 2019 12:24 P.M. (Updated: April 24, 2019 4:14 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers raided the al-Samou town, in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on Wednesday morning, to perform religious rituals for Jewish holidays.

Locals reported that Israeli forces sealed off an archaeological site in the town to secure Israeli settlers’ visit.

Dozens of Israeli settlers performed religious rituals at the site.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces raided the al-Thahriya, Yatta, Taffuh and a neighborhood in the Hebron district, set up several checkpoints at the entrances of these towns obstructing movement and traffic.

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.

The majority of settler thefts committed against Palestinians are met with impunity, with Israelis rarely facing consequences for such thefts.
