Israeli settlers steal 14 sheep from Palestinian herders in Salfit-area town

SALFIT, Wednesday, June 7, 2023 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today stole 14 sheep owned by a local resident in the town of Kufr al-Dik, to the west of Salfit, according to the town’s mayor Mohammed Naji.

He told WAFA that settlers from the settlement of Badawil, built illegally on Kufr al-Dik lands, stole 14 sheep belonging to Adnan al-Dik.

Violence committed by settlers against Palestinians has been documented since the very early days of the occupation.

“The military avoids confronting violent settlers as a matter of policy, although soldiers have the authority and duty to detain and arrest them. Israeli security forces routinely enable settler violence against Palestinians and their property,” said the Israeli information center for human rights in the occupied territories, B’Tselem.
