Settlers stormed the Bab Al-Zawiya area, the commercial center of Hebron, and Yatta Municipality Park in the village of Al-Carmel, in the south, today.

Local sources said that dozens of settlers, under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces, stormed the Bab al-Zawiya area, the Hebron commercial center, heading towards an archaeological site, according to their claim, on “Beersheba Street”, which they call “the tomb of Otnael bin Kenz.”

They added that the occupation forces raided the street and forced the shop owners to close their doors, noting that the settlers headed towards the “tomb of Otnael bin Qinz” area, while they were dancing, singing, and shouting obscene phrases and insults against the Arabs, in conjunction with the evacuation of the street from passers-by, to facilitate settlers arrive.

In a related context, the coordinator of the National Committee Against the Wall and Settlements south of Hebron, Ratib Al-Jubour, stated that dozens of settlers from the settlements forcibly built on citizens’ lands east of Yatta, namely (Ma’on, Karmiel, Hafat Yair, Susiya, Mitzpe Yair, Havat Ma’on, Avijal, and Beit Yattir), And other settlements and outposts stormed the Yatta municipality park, and took a swim in the Carmel pond.

Al-Jabour added that the occupation forces severely beat the activist in the popular resistance, Muhammad Ali Al-Shawahin, which caused him bruises.

The occupation soldiers also climbed the roofs of several houses overlooking the roads leading to the settlement outposts and the park to ensure the protection of the settlers.
