HEBRON, Saturday, April 18, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers attacked today Palestinian farmers as they were working in their lands in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank, according to Fouad Amour, a local activist.
He told WAFA that settlers attacked the farmers in Khirbet al-Khrouba as they were harvesting their crops and attacked an activist who was with the farmers and seized his camera while he was filming the attack.
Israeli soldiers in the area gave cover to the settlers and intervened only to force the farmers to leave their land.
Settlers also attacked residents in another village in Masafer Yatta, said Amour.
He said the settlers attacked the village of Khirbet Maghayer el-Abeed, beat one resident and stole his donkey before leaving it.
Residents of the villages sterilized the area where the settlers and soldiers were after they left it fearing they brought coronavirus with them.
