HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Wednesday assaulted Palestinian school children in the southern West Bank, a school official said.

A school principal told Ma'an that a group of extremist Israeli settlers hurled stones at school girls in the village of al-Tuwani, leaving them bruised.

Israeli soldiers stood by and watched without taking action as the settlers threw rocks, the principal said.

The girls who sustained injuries were identified as Kifah Omar Abu Jundiyya and Dalal Awad Zein, both seventh graders.

In al-Tuwani and other areas in the southern Hebron district, school children on a daily basis wait at checkpoints for Israeli soldiers to let them through locked gates.

Regardless of Israeli military presence, settler attacks on children en route to and from school remain commonplace, the principal said.

In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

Could it be that the soldiers were being trained? On how to torment the goyem.. And this is part of a larger plan to make their lives so miserable that they just leave? And then claim: "They just left all on their own" And attacking young school girls is just a sick exercise... Repulsive.. Perverted society..

IDF/IAF have a command(The Command),a core oath,sworn on graduation,that all military,"not follow illegal commands.A soldier has the obligation to refuse an illegal and immoral command".(Yonatan Shapira ex-IAF,now brave activist)."Purity of arms"&"human dignity"! Problem is,laws are authored by facists,blessed by'Torat Ha'Melech'Rabbi's & orders given by Shavshatz commanders who would,if allowed,all massacre the non-Jews,today!Zionism blatantly insults The Holocaust & is implosive for Israel.

@1 Carol, I continue to be surprised that "something has" not given. Jordan remains quiet while worshipers are abused and the Mosque of Al Aqsa is desecrated. Perhaps the IOF standing by are only following orders to provoke a third intifada whereby the zionazis can say to the West, "See, this is why we need draconian security measures as we are under constant threat..." How many children must suffer this abuse before the West acts? As they grow, they will remember-and they will be militant!

Israel's army is one big extremist hesder yeshiva-mob!Lior lunatics!And this 'soldier'knows he is BETRAYING his ultimate military Command/Basic Law &intnl laws!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsoC9EAkba8

To Carol Scheller #1: 'You know what ?: one more incident like this, something has got to give.' I was thinking about that. If someone had stoned my daughter when she was thirteen -- and the authorities had stood by and watched to boot -- I don't think I'd have been too impressed by any arguments that I should confine myself to non-violent resistance, seek the way of peace, etc.

I don't believe this report at all. Seriously, settlers don't do this, and even if a few nuts do, the IDF does not allow it at all, they arrest everyone.

Oh I'm sure it takes a real tough group of men to attack little school girls. We know who have the real cajones there. Its not the idiots hiding behind a wall of heavily armed soldiers. It's the girls that walk to school everyday past these idiots despite the threat to their daily lives. The weakest Palestinian school girl is tougher than the toughest Israeli settler. That is a fact. If they didn't have protection, they'd be quivering spineless germs.

The attacking of children in the name of the so called occupation indicates the very low levels of the occupying power. De facto the state is responsible.No one anywhere in the world would condone this barbaric action. Of course there are those who will argue that any condemnation of such acts is "Anti-Semitism'.

@Mo Malheureusement c'est la r?alit? que vivent quotidiennement les Palestiniens qui subissent les attaques des colons extr?mistes sous le regard bienveillant de l'arm?e "la plus morale" du monde dans la "seule d?mocratie" du Moyen Orient!

To Mo #9: 'I don't believe this report at all....' When all else fails, try denial. '...Seriously, settlers don't do this, and even if a few nuts do, the IDF does not allow it at all, they arrest everyone.' Remarkably, every element of that statement is false. Settlers do do this, it's not just 'a few nuts,' and the Israeli army almost invariably arrests no one.

To Rami #10: 'Oh I'm sure it takes a real tough group of men to attack little school girls.' It takes more than a really tough man. It takes a Zionist.

399 incidents by 500,000 settlers. That is almost 1 incident for every 1000 settlers. They are certainly violent people, aren't they? Or am I confused?

Even if not all settlers "do this" the fact that some do is reason enough to put an end to the terrorism. And remember, not all Palestinians attack soldiers and Israelis. Just a few of the "crazies" do.

To Confused #16: ' Or am I confused?' ...or maybe you're just trying to condone the behavior of the settlers. Why don't you point out how many toddlers they HAVEN'T run over? I would suggest examples of settlers who haven't stolen land, but that would be an oxymoron.

To Maisie #13: 'If it were true, Santa Claus is real and I am Marie, Queen of Roumania.' More would insist on just that if it were necessary to do so to defend Israel. He's a Zionist.

To Confused #16: '399 incidents by 500,000 settlers.' To take this another way, most of those settlers are well-insulated from Palestinians, so they haven't the chance to attack them. Moreover, settlers invariably attack in packs, so not only is it a population of less than 500,000, but it's definitely more than 399 of them that are vicious criminals. Much more important, however, is the fact that the state condones their behavior. Of course, I seriously doubt if that bothers you.

"Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment" . This doesn't suprise me. Extremist settlers, Israeli army and - police are on the same cruel side. They have the same objective in executing zionism. Occupy /Opress Palestinian people and make their live as miserable as possible to leave their home land to create more space for jews for Judaisation of Palestine. That's Zionism.

Mo/Canada (9) Don't kid yourself. This happens. I've seen it on video. A Jewish Canadian MD Friend who's worked in the West Bank has seen it personally. This happens all the time. This is not the Israel you and I were brought up to believe in. This is a fascist, occupying, ethhic cleansing state.
