Israeli Soldiers Prevent Shepherds from Grazing Livestock

HEBRON, February 24, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers Tuesday chased after Palestinian shepherds and prevented from grazing their livestock in Yatta locality to the south of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Coordinator of the popular committee in southern Hebron, Rateb al-Jabour, Israeli forces chased after shepherds in Khirbet At-Tawil, located near the Israeli settlement of Maon, built illegally on Palestinian-owned land in East Yatta, in an attempt to prevent them from entering the fields for the benefit of providing protection for settlers.

Forces further raided shepherds’ dwellings, causing financial damages to their contents.
