Description
RAMALLAH, July 13, 2011 (WAFA) - Three teenaged settlers from Havat Ma'on outpost near Tuwani, a village south of Hebron, Wednesday threw stones and shouted insults at two Palestinian shepherds, driving them off of Palestinian land, according to a press release.

The press release said that Kamel Muhammeri and his 12 year-old nephew, were herding Muhammeri's flock on Meshaha hill when the settlers emerged from the trees surrounding the outpost; the shepherds immediately left the area with the sheep, but the youth pursued them and threw stones.

Two international observers from Christian Peacemaker Teams witnessed the attack, said the press release.

It added that after the attack, the settler youth spoke with two adult settlers in a pickup truck; two of the teenagers returned to the post in the truck, and the third on foot.

According to the press release, this attack follows a similar incident on June 25, 2011, in which settlers, armed with stones and knives, attacked two shepherds on Meshaha hill, including Muhammeri's brother Shaadi, who was taken to the hospital with leg injuries sustained during the incident.
