Israeli colonialist settlers attacked, Tuesday, Palestinian shepherds east of Khirbat Makhoul village, in the Northern Plains of the occupied West Bank.

Human Rights defender Aref Daraghma stated that the colonizers attacked several Palestinian shepherds, and forced them out of grazing areas.

On Monday the colonizers attacked the shepherds in the same area and maced one of them with pepper spray.

The attacks against the Palestinians are frequent in the area, especially since the colonizers are trying to push the Palestinians out of their lands to build or expand the illegal colonies.

Also Monday, illegal colonizers invaded Palestinian orchards in Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and cut dozens of trees.

Israeli authorities razed the West Bank village of Khirbet al-Makhoul, located in the Jordan Valley, on September 16, 2013. The destruction caused nearly all of its 120 residents to relocate to the nearby village of Tannoun.

Israeli authorities arrived two more times over the past month to destroy makeshift structures used to protect the herds from the beating sun. Many of the animals died of dehydration. Despite Israeli orders and unrelenting pressure, 20 villagers stayed behind to rebuild the village. Israeli activists arrived earlier this week for a solidarity visit.
