Israeli Settlers Steal 120 Sheep from Palestinian Farmers

Af.M | DOP -

Colonial Israeli settlers Tuesday, December 20, stole 120 sheep from a Palestinian shepherd in the town of Yaabad, south of Jenin.

The Palestinian youth Imad Lutfi Zuhair said that the Israeli settlers forced him away from his flock and stole the sheep.

According to the shepherd, the Israeli settlers came from the illegal Israeli settlement of “Mevo Dotan” built on stolen Palestinian land near Yaabad, south of Jenin.

Last month, illegal Israeli settlers stole six cows owned by Palestinians in the north of Jordan Valley.

Israeli settlers’ attacks have escalated recently against the Palestinian citizens’ own properties in the occuiped West Bank including attacking the Palestinian homes, sabotaging their cars, and blocking their roads. 

Since the beginning of 2022, Israeli settlers have carried out more than 290 attacks on Palestinians and their own property in the occupied West Bank, 230 of which caused property damage, and 60 of them caused injuries to Palestinian residents, according to United Nations reports. 

More than 650,000 colonial settlers were distributed among 164 illegal settlements and 124 outposts built on the stolen lands of occuiped West Bank and Jerusalem. 

The West Bank and Jerusalem lands are occupied territories based on International law due to this all Israeli settlement-building activities there are illegal.
