Saturday afternoon, Israeli soldiers arrested some 30 left-wing Israeli peace activists in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

An Israeli military source reported that the activists were protesting in solidarity with the residents of Tal Rmeida neighborhood, which has been subjected to repeated settlers attacks.

Meanwhile, the WAFA news agency reported that settlers and soldiers attacked the activists and dozens of Palestinian residents.

The activists said in a press release that settlers hurled eggs and stones at them and at Palestinian homes in the neighborhood.

The arrested activists were transferred to police stations in Keryat Arba’ and Gush Atzion settlements, near Hebron. 

The activists were attempting to meet with Palestinian residents who were attacked by settlers, and report on the damage caused by the attacks against their homes and properties.
