WAFA FEBR 28 2012

HEBRON, February 28, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers from Havat Maon, an illegal settlement south of Hebron, Tuesday attacked Palestinian shepherds and injured one, according to a local activist.

Rateb Jabour, from the local Popular Committee against the Settlements, told WAFA that dozens of settlers, protected by Israeli soldiers, attacked shepherds who were grazing their sheep in the fields and injured a 45-year-old shepherd.

Area residents intervened to protect the shepherds while the Israeli soldiers did not attempt to stop the settlers’ assault, added Jabour.
