Israeli settlers open fire at protesters near Hebron

Feb. 6, 2015 9:58 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 7, 2015 6:54 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers opened fire at Palestinians participating in a peaceful protest near Beit Ummar late Friday, a local official said.

Muhammad Muheisen, the coordinator of the popular resistance committees in southern Hebron, said settlers from the illegal settlement outpost of Karmei Tsur shot live fire directly at participants in the protests.

No injuries were reported.

The protesters were raising Palestinian flags and holding signs calling for the end of the Israeli occupation and settlements.

Over 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
