In video - Israeli settler assaults activist, journalist in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli extremist settler attacked a journalist and an activist in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, on Sunday.

Activist Issa Amr said that had filed several complaints against Israeli extremist settler Inat Cohen, however, when he headed to the Israeli police last month they attempted to detain him.

Amr added that Cohen's attacks and assaults against locals and internationals are a proof of the Israel's apartheid and ethnic cleansing policy in Hebron.

Palestinian residents of the Old City of Hebron face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 32 permanent and partial checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets.

Additionally, Palestinians are not allowed to drive on al-Shuhada Street, have had their homes and shops in the street welded shut, and in some areas of the Old City, are not permitted to walk on certain roads.

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

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.
