Jewish settler immigrants from North America have attacked and severely beat American Christian peace volunteers near the village of Yatta south west of Hebron.

"They threw a stone at my head which knocked me over and then whipped me with chains," Mr Brown said.

He said that Ms Lamberty had her passport, mobile phone and money stolen by the settlers.

He also said that harassment of Christian volunteers working with Palestinians in the area is common.

"They normally throw stones at us or fire their guns over our heads - but this is the most vicious assault so far."


Rabbi Arik Asherman, Director of Rabbis for Human rights quipped, "I don't know how many Palestinian baseball teams there are in that area. It is quite clear that the attackers were settlers."
