Israeli settler runs over sheep, others set fire to crops in south of West Bank


HEBRON, Monday, May 25, 2020 (WAFA) – An Israeli settler ran over and killed three sheep while injuring a dozen others as other settlers set fire to crops in the south of the West Bank, according to local activists.

Rateb Jabour, from the anti-wall, anti-settlements popular committees in the south of the West Bank, told WAFA that a settler driving a 4-wheel-drive vehicle, sped when he saw sheep in the fields in the al-Dirat village and ran them over killing three and injuring 12 others before running away.

Raising sheep and herding is an important source of income for thousands of Palestinians who live in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank.

In another incident, settlers from the illegal Havat Maon outpost in Masafer Yatta, set fire to more than 30 dunums of land planted with wheat and barley, totally destroying them, according to Fouad al-Imour, from the land defense committee in Masafer Yatta.
