Jewish Fanatics Assault Two Palestinians, including Child in Hebron

HEBRON, August 18, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli Jewish extremists on Tuesday assaulted two Palestinians, including a child who was pelted with stones, in the Old City of Hebron, according to local and security sources.

The sources said a group of extremist settlers assaulted with stones a small Palestinian girl in Hebron’s Old City neighborhood, causing her bruises all over her body. The child, who was identified as Farah Abu Sneineh, was given first aid at the scene.

In the meantime, Jewish fanatics physically assaulted a young man in the same area, causing him bruises throughout his body. The man, identified as Yaqoub Komi, 37, was transferred to Hebron’s public hospital for immediate medical treatment.

Violence by illegal Jewish fanatics is increasingly becoming an everyday occurrence. Settlers have repeatedly attack Palestinians, their property and worship places. Settlers’ violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

On July 31, a group of Jewish fanatics killed 18-month-old Palestinian baby Ali Dawabsha and seriously injured his entire family, during a predawn arson attack, which targeted two homes in the village of Duma, south of Nablus.

Ali’s father, Sa’ad Dawabsheh, died of his wounds a few days later. The child’s mother, Riham, and his 4-year-old brother Ahmad remain under intensive care after sustaining third degree burns. They were transferred to hospitals in Israel for urgent medical treatment due to their critical condition.
