NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers opened fire on Thursday toward Palestinian shepherds south of Nablus near Itamar settlement, a Palestinian Authority official said.
Ghassan Daughlas, who monitors settlements activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that a number of Israeli settlers from Itamar opened fire toward shepherds from Yanoun, a small village.
Settlers opened fire to keep them away from al-Dawiya area which is located near the settlement.
The settlers were accused of poisoning livestock in the area days earlier, he said.
