    WAFA correspondence reports that gun-toting Israeli settlers chased
    down and intercepted a number of female Palestinian students,
    Tuesdays, while they were on their way home from school in the
    village of Kisan, east of Bethlehem.

Head of Kisan village council Hussain Ghazal said that the students 
succeeded in seeking refuge at a nearby residential area, escaping injury.

Ongoing settler attacks against Palestinians have significantly 
increased following the killing of an Israeli soldier and a female 
settler <http://www.imemc.org/article/69675> on Monday.

The rise in such attacks, including inside Israel, has sharply increased 
following Saturday's incident in which Israeli police murdered, without 
any apparent provocation <http://www.imemc.org/article/69662>, 
22-year-old Kheir e-Dine Hamdan, a resident of the Galilee.

Settlers, on Tuesday, attacked a number of Palestinian homes to the 
south of Hebron with stones while, in a separate incident, settlers 
sabotaged the content of a Palestinian stone-cutting factory, according 
to local and security sources.

In Hebron, settlers from the nearby illegal settlement of Hagai broke 
into the Harayek area, to the south of the city, where they pelted 
stones at Palestinian houses, yet no injuries were reported.

Earlier, in the predawn hours, illegal Israeli settlers stormed a 
Palestinian-owned stone-cutting factory in the village of Hawwara, to 
the south of Nablus, destroying some of its content and machines.

Israeli forces kidnapped, early Tuesday and Monday night, at least ten 
Palestinians from across the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Israeli forces raided 'Askar refugee camp, to the east of Nablus, where 
they broke into the house of Nur al-Din Abu Hashya, suspected of 
stabbing an Israeli soldier in Tel Aviv on Monday. Forces ransacked the 
house and took his father, Khaled, 55, along with his three brothers, 
Walid, 'Izz Ed-dine, and Mohammad.

Nur al-Din Abu Hashya was reportedly taken into custody, according to WAFA.

Meanwhile. in Jerusalem, Israeli police further abducted one Mohammad 
'Ubaid, who works as a paramedic, as well as 30-year-old Ahmad 
al-'Amuri, after breaking into and ransacking their houses.

In Hebron, forces raided 'Ein Sarah Street, where they arrested 
Mohammad, the brother of Maher al-Hashlamon (the man who reportedly 
killed a woman and injured three other people) after breaking into and 
ransacking his family's house.

Maher al-Hashlamon is currently unconscious in the intensive care unit 
at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem, after being shot and 
critically wounded by soldiers stationed near the scene.

Ayman al-Shwaiki was also taken from the same neighborhood, following a 
raid on his house.

In the Jenin district, forces abducted two teenagers from the Abu Bakir 
family; Liqa', 18, and Rabi', 19, near Ya'bad town, to the southwest of 
the city.

Following Monday's stabbing incident, Israeli troops forced Palestinians 
in Huwwara town, to the south of Nablus, to shut down their shops in 
anticipation of a demonstration organized by Israeli settlers from 
Yitzhar junction to Za'tarah military checkpoint.

Settlers vandalized Palestinian vehicles 
<http://www.imemc.org/article/69684> parked near the checkpoint.

Finally, several hours later, dozens of settlers closed the main 
entrance of Beit Fajjar, a town to the south of Bethlehem.
