Days of Palestine – Ramallah
Israeli settlers assaulted on Saturday Palestinian shepherds and destroyed agricultural fences in the north and west of the occupied West Bank.
Local official Ghassan Daghlas said that a settler working as a security guard in the illegal settlement of Yitzhar showered shepherds with tear gas and stun grenades as they were grazing their cattle in the southern area of Madama town, south of Nablus.
Daghlas added that the attack forced the shepherds to leave the area and return home.
In another incident, a horde of settlers escorted by soldiers destroyed agricultural stone fences in Umm al-Arayes village in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron.
Local official Rateb al-Jabour said that settlers from the illegal settlements of Mitzpe Yair and Yacoub Dalia destroyed about 400 meters of dry-stone fences on swaths of land belonging to a local farmer.
Meanwhile, settlers in the evening hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles traveling on a road near the illegal settlement of Efrat in southern Bethlehem. Some windows of cars reportedly sustained damage in the attack.
