On Tuesday evening, Israeli soldiers attacked many Palestinians and international peace activists in the Shomara area in the Zweidin village, east of Yatta town, south of Hebron in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, before abducting two Palestinians and two internationals.

Fuad Al-Amour, the Protection and Steadfastness Committees coordinator in Southern Hebron Hills, said the soldiers attacked the Palestinians and the international solidarity activists while trying to stop illegal Israeli colonizers from occupying grazing and farmlands owned by the local shepherds and farmers.

He added that the soldiers abducted two Palestinians and two international peace activists and took them to a nearby military base.

Al-Amour stated that the area has been subject to constant Israeli violations and assaults by the paramilitary colonizers, the soldiers, and the police, especially since the colonizers keep invading and occupying Palestinian lands and chasing the farmers and the shepherds out, in addition to stealing their livestock.

The army also recently abducted many Palestinians from the area, denying them access to large areas of their lands, especially the Bedouin areas, the eastern parts of Yatta, and Masafer Yatta.
