Groups of Jewish settlers on Sunday evening stormed Tel Rumedia neighborhood in the West Bank City of al-Khalil and assaulted Palestinian residents.
Eyewitnesses said that scores of extremist settlers, escorted by armed soldiers, attacked Palestinian citizens in Tel Rumeida.
The settlers were confronted by local residents who later managed to force them to withdraw. No injuries were reported in the attack.
Tel Rumeida is a home to 210 Palestinian families (about 1050 Palestinians) who are constantly harassed and attacked by Israeli settler groups who want them out of the area to make way for the establishment of new Jewish neighborhoods in al-Khalil.
