Two residents of Kiryat Arba suspected of firing at Palestinians during riots in Hebron Thursday, turned themselves in to police Saturday. Two Palestinians sustained wounds in the incident.

The two suspects, men in their 40s and 50s, say they faced life danger during the incident and were scared of being lynched by Palestinians. The two men say they fired as an act of self-defense.

Palestinian residents of Hebron told Ynet that the shooting occurred near Kiryat Arba. Settlers were said to have fired in the direction of the Sa'afin residence, where two family members were injured.

A B'tselem investigator who reportedly witnessed the incident said a number of settlers had fired in the air, but one aimed towards the house and injured the Palestinians inside it.

A tense calm prevailed in Hebron over the weekend, in the wake of the riots that erupted when security forces evicted Jewish settlers from a disputed house in this West Bank city.
 
'Evacuation a good move'

Meanwhile, Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann slammed security forces for failing to properly prepare for settler attempts to attack Palestinians.

"The evacuation was the proper move, and good thing it was done, but it should have been clear that a pogrom would follow," he said. "It is regrettable that security forces were not prepared to avert it. We were always outraged when Jews were not being protected abroad, yet here we were, helpless, and watching with shock." 

Earlier, A few dozen right-wing activists spent the night in another disputed site in the city, Beit Shapira, and were evacuated by security forces the next morning without a show of resistance.

Jews turn themselves in after being caught on camera.  Jews still lie about it.

According to Orit Strook, of the Human Rights in Yesha (HRY) group, B'tselem's claims are bogus. "From an in-depth analysis of the event we have concluded that the video is an edited fabrication by B'tselem," she said.

The true version of what happened, according to Strook, is that "a Jew from Kiryat Arba descended through the wadi to the scene of the confrontation at Peace House in order to extricate his son from the area.

"A group of Arabs attacked the Jew with rocks in a way that endangered him and he had to fire in order to defend his life," she added. "The Arabs kept on throwing rocks and even wounded the Jew with rocks thrown at his head from close range."

Strook said that Human Rights in Yesha suspects that the Arab who supposedly suffered moderate wounds in the shooting was not really hurt at all, because he is seen getting up onto his feet at a certain point, after being shot.

"We advise the public to stop 'eating the lokshen' [Yiddish for 'believing the lies' `“ ed.] that B'tselem serves up and to treat their videos with great suspicion," she added.
