Israeli army forces invaded and attacked shepherds’ huts in Al Bak’a Valley, East of the West Bank city of Tubas, on Saturday.

Soldiers coming from the nearby Bekeot settlement attacked the shepherds’ huts, searched them and ransacked their belongings.  The soldiers also did not allow the shepherds to herd their sheep near the settlement, claiming that it was a closed military zone.

The army attacks on the shepherds in this area are becoming more regular and violent, local shepherds said.
