Settlers 'hurl rocks at residents, houses' south of Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli settlers hurled rocks at residents and houses in a Palestinian village in the southern West Bank on Saturday, a local official said.

Jihad al-Nawajaa, head of the village's council, told Ma'an that 30 settlers entered the village of Susiya south of Hebron and hurled stones at houses.

The settlers also targeted a 13-year-old boy, but his parents were able to pull him inside before he was injured, al-Nawajaa said.

No injuries or damages from the attack were reported.

Al-Nawajaa said that locals had decided to organize a neighborhood watch to guard against future settler attacks, which villagers expect to increase in the upcoming days due to the recent disappearance of three teenage settlers in the West Bank.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
