Dozens of Israeli settlers, under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces, attacked Palestinian homes late Saturday night, in Al-Haraiq neighborhood in Hebron, throwing stones and burning bottles at them, PNN reported.

Local sources said that dozens of settlers from the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement, built on Palestinian lands, east of Hebron, and attacked homes under the protection of Israeli soldiers.

The illegal settlers broke a number of windows while chanting racist slogans, which spread fear and panic among the children.

The residents of these homes called on international community and human rights organizations for immediate action to stop what they called settler terrorism, supported by the occupation authorities, who provides them with protection.

Article 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention states that the occupying state is forbidden to transfer its own population onto the land it occupies, therefore, under international law, all Israeli settlements are illegal.
