Man injured by settlers in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers in Hebron threw stones at a Palestinian man on Saturday, causing moderate head injuries, medics said.

Samir Jaber, 20, was taken to hospital for treatment after settlers from Kiryat Arba threw stones at him in an unprovoked attack.

Hebron was split into areas of Palestinian and Israeli control under a 1997 agreement.

The Israeli military-controlled H2 zone includes the ancient Old City, home of the revered Ibrahimi Mosque -- also split into a synagogue referred to as the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

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

Settler attacks against Palestinians are routine in the occupied territories, with Israeli military authorities rarely intervening or bringing the perpetrators to justice.
