Gaza Post – Israeli settlers assaulted on Sunday several Palestinian shepherds in the Khallet Makhoul area, in the Northern Plains of the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank, and injured a child.
Local human rights activist Aref Daraghma declared that the settlers chased and attacked several shepherds, and forced them out of a grazing area.
Daraghma said that one of the colonizers assaulted a child, identified as Hussein Yousef Bisharat, 14, causing several cuts and bruises.
He stated that, two weeks ago, several settlers chased the site and tried to attack him while he was returning from a grazing area before the Israeli occupation arrested his mother and interrogated her for several hours after the settlers claimed that she “harassed them.”
To sum up, the shepherds in Khallet Makhoul are subject to frequent violations and assaults by the illegal colonialist settlers and the soldiers.
