Israeli settlers seize Palestinian family homes in Hebron


The flash point city of Hebron in the occupied West Bank has seen a rise in tensions after Israeli settlers moved into three Palestinian apartments by force just over a week ago.

Within hours the army turned the site into a closed military zone, in effect providing protection to the settlers, and restricting the Abu Rajab family access to their own home.

The Abu Rajabs are slowly being forced from a cluster of apartment building, in which they have lived for decades.
