Israeli troops attacked and chased Palestinian shepherds in Al Baq'a valley in Tammoun village, near the West Bank city of Tubas on Monday morning.

Soldiers detained some of the shepherds since early dawn hours, chased and attacked several others after claiming that this area (Al Bak'a valley), which close to the illegal settlement of Biki'ot, is a closed military zone.

The Israeli army and settlers are attacking and forcing shepherds and farmers out of that area on regular basis in order to annex the land.
