A Israeli soldier beat a 16-year-old boy in the head with a rifle barrel during a settler march in Hebron
Posted on December 15,2017
17 Settlers marched in Hebron, from the settlement of Yishai lands in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood (in Area H2) towards the Tomb of Otniel Ben Kenaz - located in an area formally transferred to the PA (1H). The army closed the shops on the streets where the march passed and prohibited Palestinians from entering them - on foot or by car. During the march, the settlers plucked Palestinian flags hanging on the doors of the closed shops. Young people who were present protested, and in response the soldiers tried to expel them. One of them beat a 16-year-old boy in the head with a rifle barrel. The boy was evacuated to the hospital, treated and released.
