Settlers attack children walking back home from school

"This is 6 and a half year old Rasha Salameh. Today, around 2pm, she was with two other children from the Southern Hebron Hills community of Maghayir al-'Abid. The children, together with Rasha's mother, were walking back home from school in a-Tuwani. When the group was near the Israeli outpost of Havat Maon, they were attacked by two settlers riding a yellow mini-tractor, who threw stones at them. Rasha was hit in the head and taken to the government hospital in Yatta, requiring 6 stitches. We reported the incident to the Israeli police. This is not the first time this month that settlers from the same outpost, illegal even under Israeli standards, have assaulted local Palestinian school children."
