Settlers torch car, spray racist slogans in Hebron village

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers torched a car and sprayed racists slogans in the Hebron village of Abu al-Asja on Monday, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Villagers told Ma'an that settlers from Susiya burnt a car and vandalized homes in the presence of Israeli soldiers, who were in the area prior to the attack.

Israeli forces then harassed Ma'an-Mix and Palestine TV crews who were reporting the incident, forcing them to delete the footage they had captured, Ma'an's reporter said.

The media crews were on the way back from Abu al-Asja when stopped by soldiers, who seized the TV cameras until military activity in the area had ended.

The reporters and cameramen were only allowed to leave after the Palestinian liaison department contacted its Israeli equivalent.

The owner of the torched car was questioned by Israeli authorities.
