AT-TUWANI UPDATE: October-December 2009

Wednesday 30 December

An Israeli settler from the Israeli outpost of Havat Ma'on chased and attacked Palestinian schoolchildren from the villages of Tuba and Maghayir al-Abeed while the children were waiting to walk to school.  Tareq Ibrahim Abu Jundiyye reported, “The younger kids started crying as we were running away because they were afraid the settler would catch them.  I mean, we had to run away, if I would have stayed I would have been struck on the head by a rock.”   The Israeli army exposed the children to this attack by arriving more than ninety minutes late to escort them to school. (See the CPTnet release, "AT-TUWANI: Israeli army negligence permits Israeli settler attack on children" and video testimony of the incident.)
