WAFA News: Israeli colonial settlers today let their herd loose on farms owned by Palestinians in Tuba village in Masafer Yatta, south of the occupied West Bank, and then attacked the farmers, according to a local activist.

Fouad al-Amour, from the protection and steadfastness committees in the south Hebron Hills, said dozens of settlers took their sheep to farming lands in the village and let them loose in the area severely damaging crops.

When the farmers attempted to protect their land and get the sheep out, the settlers, who are usually armed, attacked them.

Soldiers in the area gave protection to the settlers and arrested one of the Palestinian youths.
