Dozens of extremist Israeli settlers protesters on Wednesday evening against the reopening of a main road leading to the southern West Bank City of Hebron. The settlers attacked dozens of residents and vehicles, the Palestinian News Agency, WAFA, reported. The agency added that armed settlers gathered at the Al Fahs Junction which links between Hebron and several villages and towns in the south, and barred the residents from using the road.

The setters hurled stones and empty bottles at dozens of residents and vehicles before the army arrived at the scene and removed the settlers from the area.

The settlers were angered after the Israeli army reopened the main entrance of Hebron city approximately three days ago.

 The entrance was completely sealed for seven years, and the army installed a military tower and two iron gates in the area. The settlers claim that reopening the road “endangers their lives”.
