Israeli settlers attack house of freed prisoner, Hani Jaber

12:00 Nov 20 2011 Hebron

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers hurled rocks at the home of a freed prisoner in Hebron, media reports said Sunday.

Dozens of settlers were held back by Israeli forces from the home of Hani Jaber, 35, who was released from Israeli jail in a prisoner swap secured by Hamas in October, Al-Jazeera said.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police intercepted clashes that broke out after the incident on Saturday, German press agency DPA reported.

Jaber was serving a life sentence in Israel jail after he was charged with killing a resident of the Jewish settlement Kiryat Arba that abuts Hebron in the southern West Bank.

Kiryat Arba settlers put a $100,000 price tag on Jaber's life after he was set free, Al-Jazeera reported.
