NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers assaulted a shepherd near Nablus in the northern West Bank on Wednesday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity, told Ma'an that 42-year-old Khalid Mahmoud Barry was physically attacked after trying to stop settlers stealing his sheep in Immatin village.

The settlers were from the illegal outpost of Havat Gilad, he added.

Barry sustained cuts and bruises in the incident and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Settler attacks on Palestinian communities and their property are systematic and rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

how often do I read "settler attacks on Palestinian communities and their property are systematic and rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities" "Rarely" prosecuted. Read "never prosecuted. BECAUSE they are doing Israel's dirty work for them - making life in the occupied territories so difficult for the indigenous people that they will want to leave. Think again, Israel. They are staying.

Such attacks on innocent Palestinian civilians trying SO HARD to go about their OCCUPIED'normal' activities &being molested,savaged,marauded by Nazi-Brown-shirt-like bigots/racists,is sickening.SHAME on the Israeli Army for protecting these maniacs &their rabid"settlement security coordinators"who practically CONTROL the daily duties,of Israeli troops thru' the commanders.It's criminal the IDF allows these Jewish-extremists into their standing army! But then,USG hires al-Qaida,as proxies,so....!
