HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers accompanied by soldiers early Friday raided a Palestinian home in Hebron and assaulted ten members of a family, who were mostly children, before soldiers detained ten other individuals from the house.

Settlers from the Kiryat Arba settlement near Hebron attacked houses belonging to the al-Jaabari family in al-Ras neighborhood of central Hebron while they were escorted by a large number of soldiers.

The family told Ma'an that "soldiers tried to kill the innocent children with a dagger, and when the family fought back they detained some of them."

The injured were taken to Hebron Public Hospital in ambulances and private cars. Most of the those wounded in the assault were children.

Among the 10 individuals were: Huda Bassam al-Jaabari, Noura Fahd al-Jaabari, Dalal Muhammad al-Jaabari, Tharifa Muhammad al-Jaabari, Eid Bassam al-Jaabari, Murad Muhammad Fahd al-Jaabari, Nasser Fahd al-Jaabari and Rami Muhammad Said al-Jaabari.

Their injuries were reported as light and moderate.

Israeli forces also detained 10 individuals from the family during the assault, including: Fahd Nasser al-Jaabari, Fares Nasser al-Jaabari, Thair Nasser al-Jaabari, Makroum Nasser al-Jaabari and Radi Bassam al-Jaabari.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that a "clash" had ocurred between the settlers and Palestinians in which "mutual rock-hurling took place."

She added that when Israeli soldiers arrived to "disperse the riot, Palestinians started throwing rocks and tried to seize their weapons."

She said that two soldiers were injured by Palestinians, while eight Palestinians were detained by the soldiers in the course of the riot.

No Israeli settlers were detained, however.

The Jaabari family lives on land directly beside the Jewish settlement areas of Kiryat Arba and Givat Haavot.

The family used to live in the area of Givat Haavot, before they were evicted in order to make way for the Jewish-only settlement.

The family is regularly subjected to harassment by local settlers who seek to expand areas under their control, and the army has rarely acted on family complaints about the incidents.

Do you think any thinking person believes this propaganda? "soldiers tried to kill the innocent children with a dagger, and when the family fought back they detained some of them."

@1) Yes, I considered the settlers living in occupied lands are terroists.

Yes, I believe this. I have seen this brutality from IDF soldiers with my own eyes. The children are not human in the eyes of the soldiers. They are terrorists. Things. They don't have hearts so what's the big deal if they attack or kill them? Watch this leaked footage to get an insight into daily life for Palestinian children in Hebron: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVtHR56gPEU

'No Israeli settlers were detained, however.' I actually read that as 'No Israeli settlers were detained, of course.' Perhaps my reading was more correct.

To Rondo Mondo #1: 'Do you think any thinking person believes this propaganda? ' Why not? These are Zionists we're talking about. It's a matter of record that they shoot innocent children as they lie wounded at their feet, plant bombs in the offices of their allies while pretending to be someone else, lead the world in the illegal organ trade, lie as a matter of routine, and in general, commit every form of foulness imaginable. Why shouldn't we believe it?

Why don't the Palestinian people have their natural born right to defend their lands their people ,their families and their homes from malicious armed groups or individuals?. WHY? Why can,t they use and defend places of worship ? WHY?They are innocent. Who will defend them?

And these idiots wonder why nobody believes their stories! PalAbrabs are the only people I`ve ever heard of who kill their own children for propaganda.

Have you seen the photo of the Israeli soldier helping Arab children open their drink bottles? Sure, we all believe your idiocy. The ones shooting at homes and hospitals are the Hamas terrorists, not the Israelis. If they'd wanted to murder the family, they would have. But they don't.
