BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian family in the south Hebron hills on Thursday, injuring a seven-year-old girl, a peace group said.

At midday on Thursday, two settlers riding a quad bike attacked four children and their mother with stones as they were returning from school to the villages of Tuba and Maghayir al-Abeed, Operation Dove said.

A seven-year-old was hit by a stone and fell while attempting to escape, injuring her head. She required five stitches for her wound.

The family was attacked while using the only available path without requiring a military escort, which usually accompanies children from Tuba and Maghayir al-Abeed to their school due to the threat of settler violence.

The settlers were reportedly from the illegal outpost of Havat Maon, one of the most radical settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Settler outposts in the south Hebron hills have an adverse effect on local Palestinian communities through a combination of physical violence and restrictions on movement.

Located in Area C, Palestinians in the south Hebron hills suffer from extreme electricity and water shortages and face violent intimidation from the Israeli army and radical settlers.

Less than 1 percent of Area C has been planned for Palestinian development, while some 135 settlements and over 100 outposts have been built in the same area.

Poor girl! Condolences! Her attackers are probably the usual Lior lunatics,Ginsburgh grunts & Katz KKKists &Rotem ruffians! Unfortunately most of these extremist Zionists control the commanders of the Israeli army now & give the soldiers their "haskama"(blessing)to ignore the actions of the dark Judeo-Nazi regime engulfing Israel! Sumud,pluralistic Palestine."Never again",inclds by Jews as well!

Another fine example that the Zionists are presenting for coexistence.

Horrible, I can't believe that Israel not only enables, but also supports the extreme settlers in Hebron with military assistance. Mel is right, the settlers appear to be just like the KKK, or other fascist ideologies. How any state can tolerate this I cannot understand. Hope the child makes a full recovery soon.

How laughable @paudy to disown the settlers is to disown all of Israel. The entire country is one big settler colony. The "liberals" in tel aviv ass just as fascist as these attackers. They only hide it better.
