Israeli settler shoots live ammunition at Palestinian human rights house in Hebron
A group of human rights workers engaged in the project 'Youth Against Settlements' in Hebron, in the southern West Bank, reported that late Friday night, a group of activists were sitting in front of the group's headquarters when a settler fired live rounds from an olive grove nearby.
According to the spokesperson for Youth Against Settlements (YAS) in Hebron, the bullet ricocheted off a window behind the human rights workers, but had clearly been targeted at the group. The spokesperson said that the workers heard at least two voices speaking from the olive grove, where the bullet originated.
