Watch: Israeli soldiers, settlers assault Palestinians in Hebron

July 2, 2014 7:58 P.M. (Updated: July 2, 2014 7:58 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) – A human rights group based in Hebron in the southern West Bank published video footage Wednesday featuring Israeli settlers and soldiers assaulting Palestinian residents in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood in the center of Hebron.

The footage, taken Tuesday night by “Human Rights Defenders”, shows activist Tahir Dweik being attacked while he walks near an Israeli military checkpoint in Tel Rumeida.

As Dweik comes close to the Israeli troops, they force him to stand facing the wall and then inspect him after taking his ID card. The soldiers then cuff his hands before one of them pushes him, causing him to fall to the ground.

The video also shows a female settler attacking family members of another activist in the same group, Imad Abu Shamsiyya. The settler is seen entering the property of the Abu Shamsiyya home and taking photos. Abu Shamsiyya’s wife starts to shout and call for help while taking photos of the settler.

Israeli soldiers are then seen forcing the Abu Shamsiyya family to go inside and lock their doors behind them while the female settler remains in their yard.

A child settler hurled stones at Abu Shamsiyya’s wife,breaking her mobile phone, but that attack was not caught on the video, according to the group.
