Jewish settlers have set up an illegal outpost on Palestinian land near the Gold Souk in the occupied Old City of Hebron (Al-Khalil), the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee has said.
The committee head, Imad Hamdan, said that the settlers intend to build two housing units on the land after they took over the petrol station in Al-Shuhada Street and fenced it.
TAKE ACTION: International observers have been removed from Hebron, putting Palestinians at direct threat of attacks from settlers. Add your voice to demand that these crucial observers are retained! https://t.co/VzLhuOBfv7 pic.twitter.com/PytWkr1fNk

Hamdan expressed his grave concern over such encroachments upon the properties of Palestinian citizens in Hebron’s Old City, especially in the areas declared 17 years ago by the occupation as closed military zones.

In 2014, the occupation forces declared many Palestinian areas and streets in the Old City of Hebron closed military zones following the massacre committed by Jewish terrorist Baruch Goldstein at the Ibrahimi Mosque.
