Five Jewish American tourists were violently attacked by a mob after accidentally driving into a hostile Palestinian neighborhood in Hebron on Thursday night. The five have been rescued by security forces and extracted from a local house where a local Arab man sheltered them from the mob.

A police spokesperson has confirmed that the five have been rescued by Special Police Forces after civilian security officials and IDF soldiers gained control of the scene.

According to the police, two of the attack victims suffered light to medium injuries and were transferred to the hospital for medical attention.
