On Saturday, illegal Israeli colonizers attacked a Palestinian shepherd while herding his flock in the Masafer Yatta area, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Fuad al-‘Amour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Southern Hebron, said the colonizers attacked Hamza Ahmad Najjar near the Shu’ab al-Batem area, causing various cuts and bruises.

Al-‘Amour said Palestinian medics rushed the wounded shepherd to the al-Karmel clinic in Masafer Yatta.

The assailants came from a nearby colonialist outpost, illegally installed on stolen Palestinian lands.
