Settlers attack Palestinian homes in Hebron

July 20, 2013 12:43 P.M. (Updated: July 22, 2013 10:08 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers in Hebron attacked Palestinian homes in the Jabir neighborhood near the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba late Friday.

Clashes broke out following the attack, as Palestinians defended their homes from extremist settlers, locals said.

Israeli forces arrived at the scene and detained a Palestinian minor, witnesses added.

A 1997 agreement split Hebron into areas of Palestinian and Israeli control.

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 -- and the once thriving Shuhada street, now just shuttered shops fronts and closed homes.
