On Thursday evening, illegal Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian shepherds in Kisan village, east of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Local activist Ahmad Ghazal said the assailants came from the illegal Abie Hanahal colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands, and assaulted three shepherds from the local Obeyyat family.

He added that the attack took place in an area southeast of the village, where the colonizers hurled stones at the shepherds and threatened to shoot them if they did not leave the area, leading to a scuffle before the colonizers left.

The area has been subject to frequent violations against the Palestinian farmers and shepherds, including uprooting lands, releasing dogs to chase the Palestinians, and even briefly detaining and assaulting them.

Also, Israeli colonizers invaded Palestinian farmlands in Sinjil town, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and assaulted many farmers, wounding three. The colonizers also invaded orchards and cut trees near Nablus.
