Settlers attack family home on Shuhada Street

At 3:15 p.m. on 3
May, CPT Hebron responded to a report of settlers attacking a home above
Shuhada Street.  When CPTers arrived at
the residence near Qurtuba Girls School, they met local human rights activist
Issa Amro.  Together, they spoke with
family members, masons and other workers who had been repairing a section of
the home when the settlers attacked. 
They reported that thirty to forty settlers, male and female, came down
the hill behind the home and destroyed a portion of the exterior face of a
concrete block wall.  The settlers then
attempted, unsuccessfully, to push part of the wall into the courtyard
below.  Failing that, they threw stones,
dirt and scrap wood into the courtyard before leaving with over $400 worth of
construction tools belonging to the workmen. 

According to the
workers and the family, the Israeli military accompanied the settlers and did
nothing to stop the assault on the home. 
The police were called, but never came to investigate.

The Temporary
International Presence in Hebron (TIPH) and the Ecumenical Accompaniment
Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) also documented the incident.  EAPPI monitors the Qurtuba School area, in
which Palestinian families are especially vulnerable to attack by Israeli
