On Sunday, Israeli soldiers abducted seven Palestinian shepherds in the Al-Majaz village in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the occupied West Bank’s southern part.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers invaded the area and abducted the seven shepherds, identified as Salman Mousa Abu Arram, Taleb Mohammad Issa, Mohammad Mahmoud Mousa, Mahmoud Mohammad Mousa, Tayel Mohammad Mousa, Mahmoud Mousa and Ahmad Mahmoud Mousa.

The shepherds were on Palestinian grazing grounds when the soldiers assaulted them and abducted the seven before moving them to a nearby military base.

The Israeli army and the paramilitary colonizers frequently attack the Palestinians in the area to force them to leave their lands and be replaced with illegal colonies.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
