AL-KHALIL, (PIC)- A Palestinian shepherd survived on Sunday evening when a Jewish settler rammed his car into a herd of sheep in an area near Yatta town in southern al-Khalil, south of the occupied West Bank.
The shepherd, Ayed al-Shawahin, said that a settler from the illegal settlement of Ma’on accelerated his car and tried to run him over along with his own sheep.
He added that two sheep died and at least 10 others suffered injuries in the vehicular attack.
The settlement of Ma’on was established in 1980 on lands annexed from Yatta town. It is an agricultural settlement and includes a Jewish religious center.
Recently, a horde of Ma’on settlers attacked Palestinian citizens in at-Tuwani village, southwest of Yatta.
