Tel Rumeida update

I wrote a few days ago about the situation of Palestinians in Tel Rumeida, Hebron. You can now hear Chelli Stanley and John Harmer talk about the work of the Tel Rumeida Project yourself; they were interviewed tonight on Flashpoints! radio (segment starts at 38:30 into the program, which you can download or listen to online). I'm proud to say I had at least some part in arranging that interview.

Chelli's brother, who is in Tel Rumeida now, has been beaten three different times, and hospitalized once. She reports that just this morning in Tel Rumeida, settlers beat four elderly human rights workers, one of them 79 years old. As usual, soldiers who were present did nothing to stop the beatings.
