Dozens of Israeli settlers broke into a Palestinian building in Sahlah, in the center of the city of Hebron, in the southern West Bank, late on Thursday and forced the Palestinian homeowners to leave.

Local sources reported that the building belonged to three Palestinian families: An Nazir, Al Muhtasib and Idrees.

After forcing the families to leave their apartments, the settlers celebrated. They were seen singing and shouting in the streets and they were also throwing stones at other Palestinian houses in the area damaging Palestinian properties and cars.
