Days Of Palestine

Israeli forces chased today Palestinian shepherds in the northern Jordan Valley, said a local activist.

Aref Daraghmeh, rights activist, said that Israeli soldiers chased a number of shepherds as they were grazing their livestock in the area of al-Burj, where they briefly detained a group of shepherds two days ago.

Israeli army and settlers often prevent Palestinian shepherds from herding in the open pastures of the occupied West Bank in order to force them to abandon the area.
