Four settlers carrying guns chased 45-year-old Jihad Salameh Makhamrah from his land east of Yatta, said Ratib al-Jubour, spokesman of the southern Hebron popular committee.
While running away, Makhamrah fell in a rocky area and was treated for severe bruising in hospital.
Meanwhile, a group of settlers led by “terrorist Yaakov Dalia” attacked a group of shepherds in the same area, al-Jubour said.
Dalia lives on an illegal outpost built on private Palestinian land and released his sheep in fields owned by 55-year-old Ziad Younis Abu Iram, according to al-Jubour.
Abu Iram argued with Dalia, al-Jubour said, adding that Israeli police arrived and arrested the Palestinian shepherd.
