IOF troops arrest Palestinian shepherd, beat merchant

18:00 Aug 22 2011 Toubas (Tobas)

TOBAS, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) beat up a Palestinian businessman and detained his Mercedes car to the east of Tobas on Tuesday, eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter.

They said that the soldiers detained Samih Al-Aw for a while before releasing him, adding that Aw trades in scrap iron.

In another incident, IOF soldiers arrested a Palestinian shepherd from Tobas in the northern Jordan Valley on Monday evening.

Local sources said that the shepherd, Mahmoud Araysha, was watching as his sheep were grazing near the Mihola settlement when the soldiers nabbed him at the pretext of presence in a military zone.

The sources said that the soldiers routinely ambush shepherds and farmers in this area and prevent them from tending to their land in a bid to force them desert their land.
