Israeli settlers chase Palestinian herders out of grazing land

 

JORDAN VALLEY, Sunday, March 03, 2019 (WAFA) - Israeli settlers Sunday chased out Palestinian shepherds while they were grazing their livestock in open fields near al-Sweida area, in the northern Jordan Valley,  said a local activist.

Aref Daraghmeh, a rights activist, said settlers forced the shepherds out of the pastures and prevented them from herding their livestock.

Israeli forces and settlers’ harassment of shepherds has become a daily occurrence in the Jordan Valley, which Israel is trying to empty of its Palestinian residents while increasing its Israeli settler population.
