Israeli colonialist settlers attacked, Tuesday, Palestinian shepherds east of Khirbat Makhoul village, in the Northern Plains of the occupied West Bank.

Human Rights defender Aref Daraghma stated that the colonizers attacked several Palestinian shepherds, and forced them out of grazing areas.

On Monday the colonizers attacked the shepherds in the same area and maced one of them with pepper spray.

The attacks against the Palestinians are frequent in the area, especially since the colonizers are trying to push the Palestinians out of their lands to build or expand the illegal colonies.

Also Monday, illegal colonizers invaded Palestinian orchards in Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and cut dozens of trees.
