On Friday, a group of illegal Israeli colonizers attacked several Palestinian shepherds near Hebron city in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, just one day after killing pregnant sheep in the same area.

Fayez at-Till, the head of Zannouta village council near the ath-Thaheriyya town, south of Hebron, said the colonizers chased many Palestinian shepherds from the grazing areas.

He added that the colonizers attacked several shepherds and told them they could not return to the area.

Fayez stated that the attack came just one day after the colonizers chased and assaulted several shepherds and even clubbed many pregnant sheep resulting in the stillbirth of about twenty lambs.

Fayez also said that Israeli soldiers attacked the shepherds and abducted three, identified as Mos’ab Suleiman Khdeirat, Sami Ribhi Battat, and his brother Sami.

He warned that the shepherds, the residents, their homes, and property in the area face dangerously escalating violations, especially since there is an illegal colonialist outpost built on stolen Palestinian lands near the colonialist Industrial Zone.
