A Palestinian shepherd was injured, Monday, after illegal Israeli colonialist settlers attacked him in Far’ata village, east of Qalqilia, in northern West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the colonists attacked Mohammad Mahmoud Salman, causing various cuts and bruises, especially to the head.

Daghlas added that the shepherd was herding his sheep on his land, in Far’ata, when the colonists assaulted him.

Palestinian medics were called to the scene and rushed the man to a hospital for treatment.
