Israeli colonialist settlers attacked, Thursday, many Palestinian shepherds in Susiya area, east of Yatta town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Rateb Jabour, the coordinator of the National and Popular Committees in Hebron, said the colonists attacked the shepherds, and hurled stones at them while forcing them away from the grazing area.

He added that the colonists came from Susya illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.

The attack is part of the dozens of similar violations by the illegal colonists targeting the farmers and shepherds in the area, including attacking their dwellings.

Two days ago, the colonists attacked Palestinian shepherds who herding sheep in a field near the village of al-Tuwana, near Heron.
