Two Palestinian children have been moved, on Saturday evening, to the Hebron governmental hospital, in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, after a number of extremist Israeli settlers sprayed their faces with pepper spray.
Raed Abu Rmeila, a local human rights activist, said he moved the two children to hospital, after the settlers attacked them in Bani Dar neighborhood, in Hebron’s Old City.
The two have been identified as Mohammad Makram Nawaj’a, 10, and ‘Odai Nasser Edrees, 12.
He added that the settlers started organizing provocative tours, each Saturday evening, in different parts of the Old City of Hebron, under heavy Israeli military presence, and frequently attack the Palestinians.
Some 800 Israeli settlers live in the city of Hebron, and around 250.000 Palestinians.
