JENIN (Ma'an) -- Palestinian farmers in Jenin on Wednesday accused settlers of deliberately releasing wild boars and stray dogs onto their land to attack livestock.
Farm owner Amal Labadi told Ma'an that "dozens of stray dogs and boars attacked my farm in the southern neighborhood of al-Yamun, killing eight sheep and wounding others."
Labadi said that several similar attacks have been reported in previous months.
Locals say settlers from the nearby Rehan settlement deliberately release boars and stray dogs to destroy Palestinian fields and attack farm animals.
