Soldiers watched as a settler harassed a Palestinian man near the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement on Friday afternoon, Hebron’s Youth Against Settlements group reported.
When the man became angry and yelled back at the group, he was assaulted and sustained severe bruises, the report said.
The youth group said the man targeted in the assault was Anan Ja’bari, who lives adjacent to the settlement in the Old City of Hebron.
