HEBRON, January 8, 2012 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers Sunday attacked two Palestinian boys near Tel Rumeida area in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to witnesses.
The boys’ father, Mohammad Abu Aisheh, said the settlers physically attacked his two sons under the protection of the Israeli army.
He said that they pointed a knife at one of his sons aiming to scare off the residents of Tel Rumeida who attempted to intervene to save the boys.
Abu Aisheh said that Israeli soldiers and settlers use barbaric means in attacking children and in damaging property and land in Hebron in an effort to force Palestinian residents to leave their homes and move somewhere else.
