HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli settlers from Ma’on settlement near Yatta south of Hebron on Thursday vandalized summer crops in fields belonging to Palestinian farmers from Yatta, an official said.

Local popular committee spokesman Ratib al-Jubour said in a statement that settlers from the illegal settlement chased Palestinian farmers and shepherds in the nearby area al-Kharrouba.

The statement added that settlers allowed their own sheep to graze on the farmland.

The fields belong to Rabai family, according to the statement.
