Israeli soldiers abducted, Saturday, seven Palestinian shepherds, including four siblings, who tried to defend themselves after fanatic illegal Israeli colonizers attacked them, wounding one, in the Northern Plains of the occupied West Bank.

Mo’taz Bisharat, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in Tubas, said more than sixty fanatic colonizers invaded Palestinian Bedouin communities before attacking many shepherds, wounding one, identified as Mohammad Ahmad Elyan, who was also abducted by the soldiers.

Bisharat added that, instead of removing the illegal colonizers who attacked the Palestinian homes and communities, the soldiers attacked the locals, and protected the assailing colonizers.

He said that, besides Mohammad Elyan, the soldiers also abducted six other shepherds, identified as Ahmad Hamad Elyan along with his brothers, Mahmoud, Ismael, and Mohammad, in addition to Mohannad Mohammad Zghayyar and Hotheifa Nabil Daraghma.
