    A photographer who claimed to have been assaulted by Jews celebrating Lag Ba’Omer in Hevron has responded to allegations that the incident was fabricated, insisting that he was indeed attacked as he tried to film the event. Emil Salman, who was covering the celebrations in the ancient Judean city on Saturday night, along with veteran Haaretz journalist Amira Hass, told Arutz Sheva the incident lasted “for about 40 seconds”, and began when he tried to approach the Jews’ traditional Lag Ba’Omer bonfire. […] Surprisingly, he said he hadn’t suffered any injuries in the attack, apart from a “pain in the...

    Jewish extremists have gone too far, and it's time to put a stop to them once and for all. Their attacks have become an epidemic, from the north to the south of Israel - and here are just four shocking illustrations from this month alone. Last week, a mob of Jewish youths attacked a group of 11- and 12-year-old schoolgirls, hurling firebombs at their bus near Hevron, in an attack which only failed to cause death or serious injury because attacks against Arabs in the area are so frequent they almost all reinforce their vehicles against rocks and firebombs as...

    Roughly 20 extreme-left activists and Arab protesters arrived at Hevron in Judea this week, but their plans to spark a confrontation with Jewish residents of the “Peace House” and IDF soldiers were upset, as local Arab residents kicked them out of the city. The activists had arrived with cameras and the flags of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), hoping to spark clashes with Jews in Peace House, the Hevron building that in early March finally was recognized by the Supreme Court as having been duly purchased by its Jewish owners, after a six-year-long trial and a ten-year-long struggle.

    Alert Border Police officers thwarted an attempted terrorist attack at the Tomb of the Patriarchs (Ma'arat Hamachpelah) in Hevron on Saturday night. At 2 a.m. an 18-year-old Arab youth from the Abu Sneineh neighborhood of Hevron approached a security checkpoint outside the tomb brandishing a large kitchen knife and screaming. The two men stationed at the checkpoint immediately took action, adhering to the standard procedure for arresting suspected terrorists, which includes firing warning shots. The knife-wielding man was arrested and taken to a local police station. “As soon as they aimed their guns at him, he stopped immediately,” a Border...

    Arabs are the culprits behind the destruction Saturday of agricultural fields operated by the Jews of Hevron, say the local Jews. According to a resident of Hevron, Haim Bleicher, some of the Jews discovered the destruction, which included the uprooting of saplings, during their Sabbath family outings. The plot is part of a larger parcel of land that belonged to Jews until 1929, when local Arabs went on an infamous murderous rampage that drove the Jews out. After Hevron was liberated in 1967, some parts of the parcel were handed over to Jews, while others remain in Arab hands. Last...

    In a joint effort and rare demonstration of unity, Jewish and Arab residents of Hevron are beginning to repaint the city walls that have been desecrated and profaned with derogatory graffiti for over a decade. Jewish residents, Israeli police and local Arabs are coming together in this highly contentious area in an effort to restore and repair the city to its undefiled state, before anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim graffiti came to be one of its most notable traits, Israel’s Hebrew daily Maariv reported.

They requested permission to return to their homes and property in the Old City, confiscated and occupied by Jordan. Dayan consented, and, as a result, Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter today flourishes. Simultaneously, past Hevron inhabitants, Jews who had been expelled in 1929, and again in 1936, requested a similar meeting with Dayan, in order to return to their homes in the recently liberated...

    Jews in Hevron are facing the prospect of another expulsion after the State Prosecution adopted a former senior prosecutor’s opinion in favor of evicting Israeli Jews from Beit Ezra. Beit Ezra is a Jewish owned building in Hevron that was abandoned in 1947 when Jews were forced from the city, but was restored to Jewish ownership following the 1967 Six Day War. A court has issued a verdict favorable to the Jewish families living in the property, but the families’ rights to the building have been challenged by a Peace Now lawsuit calling for their eviction. .....

Homes have sometimes been destroyed in the middle of the night, and on at least one occasion, residents say, an Arab demolition crew stole valuables. However, they said Saturday night, never before have police carried out a demolition on the Sabbath. Resident Aryeh Davis accused the police of “adding insult to injury.” Davis, who has previously spoken to Arutz Sheva, said, “It’s not enough to destroy the land of Israel,...

    Two Jewish civilians were targeted by a sophisticated Arab roadside bomb Wednesday night near Hevron but escaped unhurt miraculously. The serious incident was hardly reported at all in the press, which was busy counting the number of blows dealt to anarchists who tried to block a major thoroughfare. Chaim Siton, a resident of Avigail in southern Mount Hevron, was driving home with a friend on the dark and largely deserted road, when he saw a piece of black fabric waving in the wind and thought it was a dog running toward the road. He braked slightly. This action may have...

In response, Jews threw rocks at the store and at Arabs. Jaber was one of three Arabs who ambushed a Jewish yeshiva student aged 22, Erez Shmuel, in 1993. They attacked him with knives in a Hevron alleyway that is now known as Simtat Erez in his memory. Nationalists in Hevron told Arutz Sheva that Jews gathered near the store during the Sabbath after the girl was attacked. At a certain point,...

Officers disarmed the man, arrested him, and handed him over the Palestinian Authority security forces for questioning. During his initial interrogation by Israeli authorities the terrorist admitted that it was his aim to "stab soldiers."

    The anti-Israel boycott by the Palestinian Authority took on wider dimensions Friday night when Arabs burned two Arab stores for allegedly doing business with Jews. The stores are located on “Zion Way," the route connecting Kiryat Arba with the area of the Patriarchs Cave in Hevron. The incident is another sign that the PA boycott has fostered increasingly belligerent anti-Israel sentiment. The boycott began several months ago with the confiscation in Samaria of thousands of dollars of cosmetics produced at a kibbutz near the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley.

The families moved in one month ago. Black-uniformed army...
