Extremist settlers assault Palestinian shepherd, steal the sheep in Burqa village


NABLUS, PALESTINOW.COMA group of Israeli settlers on Wednesday assaulted a Palestinian shepherd and stole his sheep in Burqa village in the occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

Local sources said that scores of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian shepherd Harbi Abdo, 50, as he was grazing his flock of sheep near the evacuated illegal Israeli settlement of Homesh and stole about 70 of his sheep.

Palestinian Red Crescent medics provided medical treatment for Abdo who suffered from bruises across his body as well as a foot fracture.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property takes place on a daily basis in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
