An Israeli settler attacked a Palestinian old woman and her grandson, on Wednesday, in Beit Safafa neighborhood of east Jerusalem.
Isaac Herkovic, an Israeli settler, took over the house of Shiha Ali, 80 years old, last month. Ali was on her way along with her grandson to the protest tent outside their occupied house when Herkovic attacked Ali.
Ali sustained cuts and bruises all over her body from the attack her grandson sustained an injury to the head. Ali’s son called upon human right groups to intervene to stop the settlers’ attacks.
The story of Ali’s home started 18 years ago when settlers claimed that the house was theirs.
Ali went to court, but settlers started their attacks on the family in order to make them leave the house. Last month they came and forced the old woman out, at night, and took over her house.
