[Sunday June 16] Israeli soldiers kidnapped an elderly Palestinian man, after a group of extremist Israeli settlers attacked shepherds in a Palestinian village, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Local sources have reported that a number of settlers of Karmiel settlement, assaulted several Palestinian shepherds from Um Al-Kheir village, before the army invaded it.

The sources added that an elderly man, identified a Suleiman Eid Al-Hathaleen, 75, was kidnapped by the invading soldiers.

Furthermore, a number of settlers attacked dozens of local shepherds, and prevented them from entering grazing lands that belong to the village.

The settlers have escalated their attacks against the villagers in Um Al-Kheir as they are trying to expand their settlement on nearly 500 Dunams (123.5 Acres) of Palestinian lands in the area.
