Al Ja’bari, accused the colonists living in Kiryat Arba by saying:’ I hold Kiryat Arba’s colonists and the Israeli Occupation Authorities accountable for the attack’.

One of Al Ja’bari’s neighbors claimed that he went to Hebron City Hospital for an emergency at around 1:00 am and he did not see any flames which mean that the fire had started after one o’clock in the morning. Palestinians are disallowed to use that street, and many others, during the nights and is used by colonists only.
On May 29, 2010, Al Ja’bari said that he was shocked to see that the shops doors were broken and that flames consumed all the contents. Al Ja’bari added that he called the Israeli Police and informed them about the incident. They [the Police] ordered Al Ja’bari not to touch anything or open the doors before they come to inspect the crime scene on the next day. However, he waited to an avail though the Police never showed up. He decided to open the doors by himself and inspect the shops in addition to estimating damage which were around 20000 shekels.
