Hebron - Ma'an - Israeli settlers pushed 15 year-old Palestinian Hamza Abu Hattah from the roof of his Hebron home on Saturday afternoon, breaking his back.

The young man was transfered from Israeli police to Palestinian police and then to hospital where medical sources say he is in serious condition.

Ma'an's correspondent said that settlers attacked a wedding party in near the home of the young man and injured two locals. The Hattah home is in the southern West Bank town of Hebron, next to the illegal Israeli settlement of Kirya Arba.

Five others were injured on Friday evening after Israeli settlers attacked a wedding party in the same area.

Settlers occupying a house belonging to Ar-Rajabi family pelted the wedding party with stones and empty bottles, injuring Ramzi Al-Ja'bari, Fadi Al-Ja'bari and a woman from Al-Ja'bari family, according to Bassam Al-Jabir, an eyewitness who lives near the Israeli settlement Kiryat Arba. Al-Jabir also reported that the settlers attacked the home of Palestinian magistrate judge Munthir Da'na with stones.

Israeli soldiers brutally beat 'Issa Amr and Jamal Isu'eifan, Al-Jabir added, confiscating three cameras provided by the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem.

Furthermore, Israeli forces arrested Fahid Al-Ja'bari for several hours before releasing him on bail of 2000 NIS.

These assaults came as a reaction to Israeli forces removing a tent which settlers erected on Palestinian land belonging to Ziyad Al-Jabir and Mahmoud Al-Bouti near the Isralie settlement of Kiryat Arba, according to the local Ma'an correspondent. Settlers erected two new tents on the same location after the first tent was removed.
