Ramallah, 18 Rabi’ul Awwal 1436/9 January 2015 (MINA)– A local activist group in the Old City of Hebron on Thursday revealed that they have found a number of holes entering Palestinian shops closed by Israeli military order that are being used by Jewish settlers to enter and steal goods.

Ahmad Amro, a member of the emergency operations squad of Youth against Settlements, told Ma’an that they made the discovery while making the rounds on Shuhada Street and Tel al-Rumeida in central Hebron, Ma’an News Agency quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

Amro said that members of the group found the door of a Palestinian shop in the area — shut closed by Israeli military order since 2001 — ajar, and upon entering the shop they found large holes in the wall that led to other shops.

He said that Israeli settlers had stolen goods from the shops and a few connected homes during their raids.

Amro said that the squad was formed to help people in the area during the ongoing winter storm and provide them with the services they need, due to the fact that Palestinian defense services cannot reach the area because it is under Israeli control. (T/P010/P3)
