HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Settlers and Israeli forces attacked a number of farmers while working in their lands in Susiya area of southern Hebron on Saturday, landowners said.

When farmers tried to enter their own lands, settlers attacked them and released their dogs toward them, frightening young children. Israeli forces looked on but did not intervene.
