Israeli settlers assault Palestinian farmers in West Bank

West Bank (In Palestine Today) – Several Palestinian farmers and shepherds in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank were today injured when attacked by Israeli settlers, according to a local activist.

Rateb al-Jabour, from the Wall and Settlements Resistance Committees, told WAFA that settlers from the illegal settlements of Mitzpe Yair and Susya assaulted farmers and shepherds near Khirbet al-Batm and Sussia hamlets causing injuries and bruises to some of them.

The attack, he added, took place under the eyes and protection of Israeli soldiers who did not intervene to stop the settlers.

According to United Nations and human rights organization, Israeli settler attacks and violence against Palestinian civilians and their properties in the occupied West Bank have peaked in recent months and that most of the attacks were carried out in the presence and protection of Israeli soldiers.
