Shop owner in Hebron got both his front windows smashed by celebrating settlers
HEBRON 27 Nov by ISM, Khalil Team — This weekend in al-Khalil brought thousands of extremist Jews and settlers from all over Israel and abroad to celebrate the week’s Torah study on Chayei Sara  (Life of Sarah), where Abraham purchases the cave of Machpelah (which they think is in al-Khalil) in order to bury his wife Sarah.  On Friday evening, a group of settlers coming from the illegal settlement Kiryat Arba attacked one of the two remaining Palestinian shops on their way to the Ibrahim Mosque in Hebron, which partly serves as their synagogue since the settler terror attack on February 25 1994. The Israeli soldiers present did not prevent them from committing this crime. After threatening the shop owner and his customers, and smashing both shop-front windows, they continued on their way to the religious festival, loudly shouting and singing.  Although some Israeli forces along the street clearly witnessed this criminal incident, they let the settler-group go unhindered, leaving the traumatized shop-owner with the damage and the costs. Attacking shops isn’t a rarity for colonial settlers….

Violence / Detentions — West Bank / Jerusalem
PPS: 2 Palestinian teens assaulted by Israeli forces during detention
RAMALLAH (Ma‘an) 28 Nov — Two Palestinian minors have accused Israeli forces of assaulting them while in custody, a lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said on Sunday. Ammar Tawfiq Abu Hilal, 15, and Jihad Elayyan, 16, who were both taken to the Ofer detention center in the occupied West Bank, told PPS that they were severely mistreated by Israeli soldiers. Abu Hilal said that Israeli soldiers held him by his neck and tried to strangle him when they detained him from his home in the village of Dura in the Hebron district, adding that the soldiers deliberately escalated violence after he told them he was sick. Abu Hilal suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and trachea inflammation, and needs injections twice a day. Abu Hilal added that Israeli forces then took him to an Israeli watchtower and continued beating him to force him to confess that he had thrown rocks. The teen was then left outdoors under the heat for two hours, and was not given food nor water for 12 hours. Meanwhile, Elayyan told PPS that Israeli soldiers assaulted him during his detention on Oct. 31, hitting him deliberately in the legs and causing fractures in his ankle and toes. The teenager was then taken to Ofer, before being transferred to the Hadassah medical center for treatment.

BETHLEHEM (Ma‘an) 28 Nov — Three student unions from universities in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem announced on Sunday that they would be “launching activities” in support of Palestinian families whose slain children’s’ bodies are being held by Israel. In a joint statement released Sunday, the student unions of Bethlehem University, Palestine Ahliya University, and al-Quds Open University – Bethlehem, slammed the Israeli government for holding the bodies of slain Palestinian alleged attackers” to punish their families and silence their voices.” The government’s policy, the statement added, was a “type of war crime that the Israeli occupation adds to its criminal records.”  The statement was released after representatives of the unions and represents of the Fatah youth movement met with families whose children’s bodies are being held in Israel. Israeli authorities dramatically escalated a policy of withholding Palestinian bodieskilled by Israeli forces following the emergence of a wave of unrest across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel in October 2015, having repeatedly claimed that funerals of Palestinians had provided grounds for “incitement” against the Israeli state….

Israel police release Bedouin activist arrested over satirical Facebook post about fires
Haaretz 27 Nov by Jack Khoury — ‘Police should stop using Google Translate,’ lawmaker says after Anas Abudaabes freed on bail. — Israel Police released on Sunday a Bedouin activist who was arrested on suspicion of inciting to arson because of a satirical Facebook post he wrote. Anas Abudaabes, 29, an activist from the southern Bedouin town of Rahat, was arrested Thursday after he posted two Facebook posts that were critical of Arabs who see the fires plaguing Israel as punishment for a bill that seeks to silence mosque loudspeakers. Abudaabes says the police mistranslated one of his posts, reaching the mistaken conclusion that he encouraged on Arabs to set fires. The police’s decision to release Abudaabes came only a few hours after they had asked the Be’er Sheva District Court to deny his appeal of a lower court decision. In a hearing on Saturday, the court ruled Abudaabes could be held in detention until Monday. After the court ruling on Sunday, the police obtained further material about Abudaabes’ Facebook posts, including responses that showed others understood his posts to be satirical, which lead to his being freed on bail. Under the terms of his release, Abudaabes, who was freed on bail, will remain under house arrest for five days and will not be allowed to use Facebook for 15 days.”The police should stop using Google Translate,” Knesset member Osama Saadia (Joint List), who accompanied Abudaabes in court in Be’er Sheva, said, adding that they made a mountain out of a molehill….

Israel sentences wounded Palestinian woman to 3 years in prison for attempted stabbing
HEBRON (Ma‘an) 27 Nov — An Israeli military court sentenced a wounded Palestinian woman to three years in prison for attempting to carry out a stabbing attack nearly a year earlier in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) reported on Sunday evening. According to PPS lawyer Akram Samara, the Ofer military court sentenced Abla al-Adam, 45, after convicting her of attempting to stab an Israeli soldier on Dec. 20, 2015 in the Old City of Hebron. Samara added that al-Adam, a mother of nine, was shot in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet and seriously injured during the stabbing attempt, and has since undergone several surgeries in the Hadassah medical center before being transferred to the HaSharon prison. According to prisoners rights group Addameer, 7,000 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of October, 64 of whom were women. Al-Adam’s sentencing came as the Palestinian Prisoners’ Center for Studies (PPCS) released a report on Sunday denouncing the use of violence and torture against female Palestinian prisoners in Israeli custody. The center added that injured and sick Palestinian female prisoners were facing deliberate medical negligence, and that the Israel Prison Service (IPS) didn’t provide the detainees access to gynecologists or most medicines. PPCS estimated that more than 15,000 Palestinian women had been detained by Israel since the beginning of the occupation, and that Israel had detained 1,600 women since the beginning of a wave of unrest in October 2015.
