Israeli settlers assault, injure Palestinian shepherd in Tubas

Days of Palestine -

A Palestinian shepherd was injured on Saturday after being attacked by Israeli settlers in Khillat Hamad village near Tubas.

Local sources told the PIC reporter that the shepherd Rabi' Awwad suffered bruises after he was violently beaten up by Israeli settlers.

Human rights worker Aref Daraghmeh said that a group of Israeli settlers in the afternoon chased Palestinian shepherds in Khillat Hamad and assaulted one of them.

Daraghmeh said that the Israeli occupation is attempting to annex Khillat Hamad, which is mostly covered by privately-owned Palestinian farmlands, to a nearby settlement built illegally on other Palestinian lands.
