On Thursday, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian shepherds in the Al-Bweib area, east of Yatta town, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Rateb Al-Jabour, the National and Popular Committee coordinator against the Annexation Wall & Colonies, said the colonizers came from the illegal Bnei Hever colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands, east of Yatta.

He added that the colonizers brought their sheep to graze on Palestinian lands in the Ein Ash-Shannara area near Al-Bweib, and assaulted several Palestinian shepherds while threatening to shoot them if they did not leave the area.

Al-Jabour also said that the colonizers assaulted Palestinian shepherds in the Ath-Tha’la area in Masafer Yatta earlier Thursday.
