Israeli forces block dirt road in Hebron

Jan. 25, 2012 5:47 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 26, 2012 12:04 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces blocked off a dirt road in the Tel Rumeida area of Hebron on Wednesday, a local advocacy group said.

Youth Against Settlements said the closure aims to put pressure on the Abu Heikal family to leave the area, as they can no longer access their home.

Israel already closed the main road to their home because of its proximity to the illegal Jewish outpost Admot Yishai. The dirt road was the only remaining entrance to their street.

On Jan. 15, settlers torched a car belonging to the Abu Heikal family. Hana Abu Heikal told Ma'an her car had 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.

The settlers are armed and protected by Israeli soldiers and routinely assault Palestinians in the city.
