Settlers Build In Hebron, Police Standby And Watch

Settlers build structures in Hebron while Police standby and watch

Today, January 9th, settlers are building structures in Hebron on Palestinian land while police standby and watch.

Early this morning at 4am, settlers from the occupied house Beit HaShalom and Kiryat Arba began putting up structures on Palestinian land beloging to the Jabri family, across the way from them.

Around 50 settlers have built stone roadblocks on the military road as well as stone structures on, and stone pathways through, the Jabri family's land. Israeli police are not attempting to stop the illegal building or the blocking of the road, but are attempting to keep the mob from attacking Palestinian residents.

The Jabri family has been harassed on a daily basis for the last seven years, settlers have already built a pathway through other land of theirs' as well as a tent structure which they call a synagogue. These are all ways to start the process of stealing Palestinian land.
