A group of radical Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian homes located in the southern West Bank city of Hebron on Tuesday at dawn.

Witnesses reported that a dozen armed Israeli settlers from the illegal Qiryat Arba settlement, located in the eastern part of Hebron, hurled stones and empty glass bottles at residents’ homes and cars.

Witnesses added that several homes sustained damage and a number of cars were also wrecked in the attack.

The settlers also attempted to set fire to a number of homes, but the residents defended them and managed to make the settlers leave the area.
