Settlers torch a car in Hebron, throw stones at house

Jan. 15, 2012 10:13 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 16, 2012 10:14 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Settlers torched a Palestinian owned car overnight Saturday in the southern city of Hebron.

The owner, Hana Abu Heikal, told Ma'an that settlers began to throw stones at her home near the Tel Rumeida settlement at around 2 a.m before setting fire to her car.

Heikal lives near to the illegal Israeli settlement outpost of Admot Yishai which was first constructed in 1984 as a temporary structure before becoming permanent in 1998.

The main road to her home has been closed off because of its proximity to the outpost and residents have to climb a wall then use a dirt road to enter and exit.

It is impossible for residents to park their cars near their homes, Abu Heikal said, and her vehicle has been torched several times in the past.

Around 800 Jewish settlers live among 30,000 Palestinians in the parts of the ancient city of Hebron that are under Israeli control.

Routine settler abuse of the Palestinian community in Hebron includes physical assault, stone throwing, throwing waste water and gunfire.

The Israeli human rights group BT'selem says there is a "systematic failure" to protect Palestinians from settler attacks in Hebron, with Israeli soldiers often witnessing violent assaults without intervening.
