Days Of Palestine - West Bank

For the second day in a row, fanatic Jewish settlers attacked today the village of Al-Tuwani, south of the city of Hebron in the West Bank, according to a local source.

Fo'ad Amour, a local rights activist, told that settlers from the illegal settlement of Havat Ma'on, nearby, attacked the village and pelted stones at herders and other civilians in the full sight of Israeli soldiers who did nothing to stop the attack.

Amour added that not only did the soldiers do nothing to stop the attack, but further attacked with teargas and stun grenades protesters who attempted to fend off the attack. Two Palestinians were lightly injured by rubber-coated rounds fired at them by the forces.

Israeli settlers are notorious for their violence against Palestinians, but assaults on Palestinian farmers and herders have been frequent over the past few months.

Armed settlers and soldiers often prevent Palestinian shepherds from herding in the open pastures of the occupied West Bank in order to force them to abandon the area.
