HEBRON (Ma’an) -- A group of settlers attacked a Palestinian car near the Hebron settlement of Kiryat Arba on Sunday evening, witnesses told Ma'an.

Settlers threw stones at the car of Hamza al-Takrory's car, breaking the windshield. Hamza passed out during the incident and was taken to a nearby clinic for treatment.

Around 800 Jewish settlers live among 30,000 Palestinians in the parts of the ancient city of Hebron that are under Israeli control.

Reports of physical violence by settlers against Palestinians are common in Hebron, which is a microcosm of the occupied West Bank where Palestinians have limited self-rule over islands of territory surrounded by areas of Israeli control.
