Israeli settlers today assaulted a Palestinian youth in occupied East Jerusalem and herders in the south of the occupied West Bank. In Jerusalem, witnesses said settlers severely beat a youth at Damascus Gate, one of the main gates into the Old City, causing him injuries that required hospitalization. In the south of the West Bank, settlers attacked Palestinian shepherds while herding their sheep in the pastures in the Jawiya area in Masafer Yatta and forced them to leave the area, according to Rateb al-Jabour, a local activist. He told WAFA that the settlers also attempted to steal the sheep of one of the shepherds.
