Gaza, ALRAY - Three settlers attacked on Saturday morning two girls of Abu Rmela family while they were heading to their school in the Old City in occupied Jerusalem.
Wadi Hilweh Center for Information quoted Abu Yousef Abu Rmela as saying “my daughter, Dhekra, and my niece, Ghada Abu Rmela, 13 year old both, were shoved down and beaten in the face by three settlers as they passed by a Jewish quarter,”
The attack left the girls with bruises and in a state of fear and severe panic, according to the center.
Abu Yousef said he had made a complaint to the Bab Al-Selselah police station, which has opened an investigation into the incident and identified the settlers through the cameras installed in the neighborhood.
He pointed out that the attacks on Palestinian passers-by in the Jewish quarter are carried out on a daily basis, either by swearing and throwing waste at them, or by beating them.
The girls, who are residents of Silwan village lying on the edge of east Jerusalem, usually take the Jewish quarter as their route to their school ‘Khalil Al-Sakakeen’, passing through to the Bab Al-Selselah area ending in occupied Jerusalem's Old City where their school lies.
Abu Jamal of the same locality said he saw the two girls by the Bab Al-Selselah area crying of fear. As he asked them about the reason, one of them told him that settlers attacked them. He took them to the police station and made a complaint after having their family attended.
