Jewish settlers living illegally on stolen Palestinian land assaulted citizens in Tel Rumeida neighborhood of the West Bank City of Hebron in an attack which locals say is meant to push them out of their homes so the Israeli settlers can further expand their settlements.

The family of Tayseer Abu Eisha said that at least ten colonizers near Ramat Tshay Jewish-only colony attacked the Palestinian family’s house with stones and empty bottles and chased the children, hurling dirty water at them.

The citizen Hana Abu Haikal pointed out that the repressive acts of the settlers are taking place in front of Israeli soldiers, who make no effort to stop the settlers from attacking the Palestinians.  He believes such collaboration between soldiers and settlers are part of the attempt to force the Palestinians to leave, so that settlers can take over their homes and annex them for the Jewish state.
