Israeli media published  video on Friday night which shows  masked Israeli settlers attacking activists accompanying Palestinian shepherds in the occupied West Bank .

The video show settlers throwing stones at the activists, who belong to the Ta’ayush organization, and tried to hit them with clubs near the Baladim outpost.

Four of the activists were lightly hurt, according to a complaint filed with the police, PNN reports.

One of activists attacked in the video is prominent rabbi and human rights activist Arik Ascherman, who has endured attacks of a similar nature in the past.

Last week, several Israeli youth were caught on video throwing stones toward security forces near the outpost. Shortly after, a youth from the Beit El settlement was arrested, but was later released after presenting an alibi.

Baladim is considered to be one of the most Israeli radical settler outposts.
