HEBRON/AL-KHALIL: Settlers Injure Palestinian with Stones

Settlers Injure Palestinian with Stones

By Jessie Smith

On 2 June, two
boys, residents of the Beit Hadassah settlement in Hebron’s Old City, ages 14
and 15, threw multiple stones at Palestinians walking in the market below.
Some of the rocks were as large as 5 inches. One nine year old Palestinian boy
was struck with two stones causing a head injury that splattered the sidewalk
and storefront with blood.  An ambulance arrived
to rush the boy to the hospital.

An Israeli
soldier stationed beside the settlement had neither tried to2 June 2011 stop the boys nor
take any action against them after they hurled the stones.  An Israeli policeman later called on a Palestinian
resident who saw much of the incident, and took information to investigate

This same
resident’s house is back to back with the Beit Hadassah settlement. Besides
enduring daily harassment from settlers, he boards up his windows to protect
his family from the violence of the settlers. 
Lately, he has reported several incidents, including settlers from Beit Hadassah
smashing his car windows and throwing eggs at his store.
