AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): Settlers from Outpost 26 once again attack Za’atari family
home in Al-Bowereh

On 30
December 2011, between ten to twenty settlers in Outpost 26 overlooking the
Hebron neighborhood of Al-Bowereh used slingshots to launch stones onto the
roof of the Za’atari family home.  The attack began at 6:30 p.m. and
lasted approximately one and a half hours.

The
father of the family whose section of the multi-family dwelling received most
of the stones told CPTers that he called the Israeli police when the stoning
began and they told him they would be there within a half hour.  However,
they never appeared.

The
attack from Outpost 26 is one of many that have occurred over the years in
Al-Bowereh, and the lack of Israeli police response is typical.  The
extended Za’atari family, because of their homes’ proximity to the outpost has
suffered the worst of the vandalism and assaults from the settlers there.

CPT’s
Hebron Team, in coordination with volunteers from the Ecumenical Accompaniment
Programme in Israel and Palestine (EAPPI) and the International Solidarity
Movement (ISM) has patrolled the two km stretch of road that runs through Al-Bowereh for two years to help ensure the safety of children in the
neighborhood walking home from school.

According
to the Fourth Geneva Convention, the Hague Regulations, the International Court
of Justice, and several United Nations resolutions, all Israeli settlements and
outposts in the Occupied Palestinian Territories are illegal. Most settlement
outposts, including Outpost 26, are considered illegal also under Israeli law.
