HEBRON, Friday, March 27, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers attacked today Palestinian herders and other civilians in the village of Al-Tuwani, south of the city of Hebron in the West Bank, according to a local activist.
Fo‘ad Amour, a local rights activist, told WAFA that settlers accompanied by attack dogs assaulted herders in the village and injured one of them in his abdomen and hand. He was moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Israeli settlers are notorious for their attacks on Palestinians, but assaults on Palestinian farmers and herders have been frequent over the past few months.
Armed settlers and soldiers often prevent Palestinian shepherds from herding in the open pastures of the occupied West Bank in order to force them to abandon the area.
