Settlers bar Palestinian shepherds from grazing cattle in JV

Days of Palestine -

A horde of Jewish settlers on Tuesday brutalized Palestinian shepherds and expelled them from an open area of pasture in the northern Jordan Valley, east of the occupied West Bank.

Local official Aref Daraghmeh reported settlers escorted by soldiers forced local shepherds to leave a vast tract of grassland in the areas of Khilat Hamad and al-Farisiya in the northern Jordan Valley.

Palestinian shepherds in the northern Jordan Valley are exposed, almost on a daily basis, to harassment and assaults by Jewish settlers who live in illegal outposts and settlements in the region.
