Settlers assault Palestinian shepherd north of Jerusalem

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers attacked a Palestinian shepherd north of Jerusalem on Sunday causing serious injuries, Israeli rights group B'Tselem said.

A group of 10-15 shepherds from the Jerusalem-area village of Mikhmas were crossing Route 60 via an underpass on Sunday when Najeh Thalajeh Abu-Ali, 47, was attacked by six settlers.

The settlers had their faces covered with t-shirts and beat Abu-Ali over the head and body with metal pipes. They also stabbed several animals, killing a goat.

The settlers then fled the scene.

Abu-Ali required 70 stitches to his head.

Settler violence against Palestinian communities and their property is routine in the occupied West Bank, where settlers typically enjoy impunity for their attacks.
