Ahrar (By: DCI)– On 19 September 2012, an 11-year-old girl is attacked by a settler when she and her brother confront him after he damaged their water tank.
“I live in the old city of Hebron, about 10 meters away from the Jewish outpost of Abraham,” says 11-year-old Sally. “On Wednesday, 19 September 2012, we heard a loud noise on the rooftop of our house, and we realized that our water tank was being damaged,” she says. “My older brother and I went up to the roof and we found three settlers in their mid twenties, wearing white shirts and gray trousers. One of the water tanks had been flipped over and the water was pouring out.”
When Sally’s brother started arguing with the settlers, one of them pushed him so hard he tripped over and fell. “Then, the same settler pushed me and grabbed me by the neck while saying things in Hebrew. I was in pain and very scared and shivering,” says Sally. “I thought he would push me down the stairs, but then he released me and went away with the other two settlers.”
“About two minutes later, six Israeli soldiers arrived and went up to one of the settlers’ houses that are opposite our house. They never asked us what happened, and when a foreign activist tried to explain to them in English what the settlers had done, they ignored him.”
According to Sally, the settlers frequently harass them and damage their property. “My brother has not filed a complaint to the Israeli police or any other authority because it is useless,” she adds.
