Ramallah, 12 March 2013—An Israeli settler pelted two young Palestinian children with rocks on Monday after spotting them on the roof of their home in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, seriously wounding one of them.
One of the stones thrown by the settler struck Yassin K, 9, in the eyebrow, causing him to fall down on concrete and fracture his left arm, DCI-Palestine sources said. He was admitted that afternoon to Alia Hospital with a severely swollen face. Yassin’s younger brother escaped unharmed. Eyewitnesses saw the settler, who they described as a tall, bearded man in his 30s, crouching behind a plastic bin filled with stones on a nearby rooftop in the al-Qazazin neighborhood of Hebron’s Old City.
