Official: Settlers assault shepherd in Nablus village

Feb. 6, 2013 5:39 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 7, 2013 4:04 P.M.)
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.
