TUBAS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers assaulted a Palestinian shepherd while he was herding livestock in an open field in the northern Jordan Valley, on Sunday.

Local sources told Ma'an that Israeli settlers were driving at a high speed and ran over one sheep and stole another two while they were herding in an open field.

Sources pointed out that Israeli forces provided protection to the settlers as they assaulted the shepherd, who was identified as Ahmad Abu Muhsein.

Following the assault, Israeli forces detained Muhsein, however, released him after an hour and informed him to proceed to the nearest office of the so-called "city administration."

The reason for the detention remained unknown.

According to a report by Israeli NGO B'Tselem, Israeli settlers' vandalism in the occupied West Bank is a daily routine and is fully backed by Israeli authorities.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.
