Farmers say attacked by settlers

Jan. 22, 2011 9:50 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 23, 2011 2:55 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A group of farmers said they were attacked on Saturday by around 25 settlers in the southern West Bank.

The farmers said they were working on their land in Tuwani village east of Yatta, near Hebron, when settlers raided the area, protected by Israeli soldiers.

The soldiers declared the area a closed military zone and ordered the farmers to leave, they said.

An Israeli military spokesman said he was not aware of the incident.

Meanwhile, in central Hebron, a Palestinian said settlers prevented him reaching his home in Ash-Shuhuda Street.

Mufeed Ash-Sharabati said that after passing a military checkpoint installed at the entrance to the road, settlers ordered soldiers to send him back.

Ash-Sharabati said he told the soldiers he lived on Ash-Shuhuda Street, but the forces followed the request of the settlers and prevented him from reaching his home.
