[Friday Evening, December 27, 2013] Palestinian medical sources have reported that three Palestinian workers have been injured near the annexation wall, in the Ramadeen village, south of the southern West bank city of Hebron. The sources said that the workers were returning from work in Beersheba (Be’er As-Sabe’), when they were chased and assaulted by the soldiers.
The three have been identified as Shady Ahmad Al-Ajarma, 21, Idrees Yousef At-Torshan, 22, and Mohammad Ishak Khrekis, 22.
They were moved to the Hebron Governmental Hospital after suffering fractures and bruises to various parts of their bodies.
Mohammad Al-Arawna, head of the Media Department of the Palestinian Workers Syndicate, denounced the attack, saying that the union lodged a complaint with the International Workers Association, asking it to intervene, investigate the ongoing Israeli violations against the workers, and to hold Israel accountable to its crimes.
Al-Atawna said that the army, especially on roadblocks, frequently attacks Palestinian workers.
In related news, a number of settlers from the Havat Gal illegal settlement outpost, east of Hebron, attacked on Friday evening Palestinian orchard, cut and uprooted dozens of olive trees.
The 10-Dunam (2.47 Acres) orchard is located in Jabal Jales area, close to the illegal settlement outpost, and has been repeatedly attacked by the settlers in an attempt to expand their outpost.
