Eng372HEBRON (PNIC):-An Israeli settler assaulted Palestinians residents of the Tel Rumeida Street in central Hebron City in the southern West Bank, on Friday evening, while Israeli soldiers detained Palestinians.

Locals told PNIC that an Israeli settler attacked and cursed Palestinians in Tel Rumeida, and when locals attempted to prevent him a “hand fight” erupted.

Israeli forces then detained two Palestinians identified as Bassam Abu Aisha, 53, and teen Bashir Jawad al-Shweiki, 16.

The area of Tel Rumeida has long been a flashpoint for tensions between Palestinians and Israeli settlers and military, as it is located near illegal Israeli settlements whose residents are notoriously aggressive toward Palestinians.

Tel Rumeida is located within the area of the city designated as H2, an area taking over the bulk of Hebron's Old City that is under full Israeli military control, and the site of five illegal Israeli settlements which continually expand into surrounding Palestinian neighborhoods.

The Israeli-controlled H2 area is home to 30,000 Palestinians and around 800 Israeli settlers who live under the protection of Israeli forces.

Some 800 notoriously aggressive Israeli settlers now live under the protection of the Israeli military in the Old City of Hebron, surrounded by more than 30,000 Palestinians.

Palestinian residents of the Old City face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 20 checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets, as well as the entrance of the Ibrahimi Mosque itself.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers move freely on the street, drive cars, and carry machine guns.
