Settlers harrassment in Al Khalil (Hebron)

"Keep talking and frothing ass*#le, we're interested" 

A settler harasses a group of women activists wearing traditional Palestinian dress who were walking down Shuhada street as part of an action to protest against the closure of the street to most Palestinians in the West bank city of Hebron, June 13, 2012. The women were stopped after a few meters by the Israeli army and harassed by settlers. 6 activists were arrested. Shuhada Street, once the main commercial street of Hebron, has been closed to Palestinian cars by the Israeli army since 1994 and since 2001 to most Palestinian pedestrians. Dozens of Palestinian shops were forced to close down due to Israeli military orders and all commerical life ceased to exist affecting hundreds of Palestinians. Many Palestinians, due to the harsh conditions in the Old city, left the area.
