Settler arrested on suspicion of shooting Hebron teen

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli police on Monday arrested a settler suspected of shooting and injuring a Palestinian teenager in Hebron on Saturday, police said.

A "public security officer" was arrested on suspicion of shooting Ibrahim Issa Suleiman al-Tubasi, 15, while he was working his family's land south of Hebron.

The unidentified settler is from Beit Hagai, in the south Hebron hills, and will appear in court later on Monday.

Settlers in the south Hebron hills regularly attack Palestinian farmers and school children, who are often accompanied by international peace volunteers to protect them.

The south Hebron hills are located in Area C, where less than 1 percent of the land has been planned for Palestinian development.

There are some 135 settlements and over 100 outposts in the same area.
