Israeli occupation settlers on Friday morning, September 23, attacked Palestinian shepherds while grazing their sheep on their owned lands in Khilat Makhoul area in the northern Jordan Valley.

Local sources reported that a group of Israeli extremist settlers broke into the Palestinian lands in Makhoul area and attacked the shepherds.

Israeli settlers routinely attack Palestinian shepherds in the occupied West Bank in an attempt to take over their grazing areas.

Since the start of 2022, Jewish settlers carried out about 290 attacks against Palestinians and their properties in the occupied West Bank, injuring about 60 Palestinians, and causing damage to 230 of their properties.
