AL KHALIL/HEBRON UPDATE: June 2009

Sunday 7 June
The café proprietor told Hicks that the previous day, young settler visitors had broken three pieces of pottery at his shop and that the Israeli soldiers had done nothing to control them.  Further into the market, the owner of a shop beneath Avraham Avinu said that the settlers were rude, but that the soldiers had prevented them from causing damage to his goods.  Some of the settlers had told women running another shop that they were thieves, because the shops in the Old City belonged to the Jewish community.
