Extremist Israeli settlers today attacked two mosques and shattered their windows today during an attack on Bab al-Zawiya neighborhood in the city of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank.
WAFA correspondent said heavily armed Israeli settlers guarded by army attacked the two mosques as they held a provocative rally through the neighborhood, while shouting profanities and racist slogans at Palestinian residents.
Earlier this evening, several Palestinians sustained injuries in an attack by Israeli settlers on the neighborhood of Tel Rumeida in the city. The settlers pelted stones and empty bottles at homes and physically assaulted and beat up Palestinian residents, injuring some of them.
Israeli occupation forces accompanying the settlers in their attack also arrested two Palestinian young men while they were in front of their homes in the neighborhood.
Settlers also attacked vendors’ stalls and passers-by as they walked through the alleys of the neighborhood, backed and guarded by Israeli army and police.
The old city of Hebron has been a hotspot of settler violence during the past few weeks, with attacks reported there almost every day.
