HEBRON, Saturday, August 14, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian woman sustained injuries today in an attack by hardcore Israeli settlers on her home in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to local sources.
WAFA correspondent said a group of armed Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba, and who were escorted by an army force, attacked homes of Palestinian citizens in the neighborhood of Wadi Hasin in Hebron, injuring a woman and causing her bruises across her body. The woman was identified as Jihad Esaafan, 40.
The woman was moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only colonial settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
