Beit Ummer residents say harassed by settlers

Feb. 13, 2011 10:48 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 14, 2011 2:02 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A small group of armed settlers entered the town of Beit Ummar Sunday night, local sources said, describing a tense scene in the area and closed roads in and out.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was unaware of any activity in the area.

Town spokesman Mohammad Ayyad Awad said two armed settlers and a few others were walking around the residential area, causing residents to fear leaving their homes.

The settlers, he said, were seen walking toward the military outpost outside of the town, while a second group in a car made a turn around the area, then left.
