Israeli settlers, on Saturday, attacked Palestinian herders as they were grazing their livestock near the village of al-Mughayir, east of Ramallah city, in the central occupied West Bank, according to a local source.

Mayor of the village, Ameen Abu Alia, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that illegal settlers chased the shepherds out of the pastures and attempted to steal some of the livestock.

Abu Alia said Israeli soldiers made no attempt to stop the colonial settlers, rather they provided them with cover and protection.

In related news, illegal colonists on Sunday invaded the Palestinian village of al-Janiya, west of Ramallah.
