Settlers Attack Palestinian Customs Officer in Hebron

RAMALLAH, December 26, 2011 (WAFA) – A group of Jewish settlers attacked the Palestinian Customs Office and Public Safety Commission in Hebron on Sunday, destroyed their vehicles, and battered the staff, Monday said a press release by the Ministry of National Economy.

The ministry condemned the attack on its employees while they were confiscating chicken supplies smuggled illegally from Carmel settlement southeast of Hebron to the Palestinian market.

Custom officers monitor and control any illegal entrance of settlements’ products and services to the Palestinian market as part of the ministry’s campaign to keep the Palestinian market free of settlements' goods.
