Dozens of Israeli settlers on Thursday evening stormed archaeological sites west of al-Khalil’s northern town of Beit Ummar, in the southern occupied West Bank.
A PIC news correspondent said dozens of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Karmi Tsur, built on Palestinian land in Halhul and Beit Ummar, broke into a historical site in Jala area and performed sacrilegious rituals.
Extremist settlers attacked a Palestinian family while they were picking olives. 64-year-old Khalil Adi sustained bruises in his head and was taken to the public hospital.
Palestinian farmers have frequently been banned from reaching their ranches near the Karmi Tsur illegal outpost.
