Israeli settlers attack Palestinian shepherds
About 60 settlers from the terrorist hilltop youth group stormed the area and assaulted the shepherds.
Seven Palestinians were arrested and one was injured on Saturday in an attack by settlers and the Israeli occupation on shepherds in the Umm Al-Quba area, occupied West Bank.
Mo'taz Basharat, an official in the Tubas governorate, told the WAFA news agency that 60 settlers from the terrorist Hilltop Youth group stormed the area and assaulted the shepherds.
Confrontations erupted afterward with stones and physical fistfights, and one Palestinian, Muhammad Ahmed Alyan, was injured before being arrested.
Basharat detailed how the occupation army intervened in order to protect the settlers and arrested 6 shepherds in the process: Among them were four brothers, Ahmed, Mahmoud, Ismail, and Muhammad Hamad Awad, in addition to Muhannad Muhammad al-Sagheer Awad, and Hudhayfa Nabil Mustafa Daraghmeh.
He further confirmed that settlers have recently intensified their attacks on people and shepherds in most parts of the area, under the protection of the Israeli occupation army and police.
Earlier today, the Israeli occupation forces attacked people standing in solidarity with the residents of Sheikh Jarrah Neighborhood in Al-Quds, protesting the eviction of Palestinian families from their homes.
Palestinian youths confront occupation forces
On the other hand, Palestinian youths confronted Friday the Israeli occupation forces at the entrance to Anzah village, west of Jenin, after the Israeli forces intensified their military deployment in the vicinity of the area's villages.
53 Palestinians were injured, some of whom even suffocated, as a result of confrontations with the Israeli forces in the northern occupied West Bank.
The Israeli occupation government will meet next Sunday in a special session in the "Mevo Hama" settlement in the occupied Golan in Syria to approve a 1 billion shekels (around $317 million) plan to double the Israeli population of the Golan Heights and the "Katzrin" region, reported "Israel" Hayom.
According to the Israeli newspaper, the occupation government will approve upgrading infrastructure in the occupied Golan, "the establishment of new communities and neighborhoods, and the creation of around 2,000 jobs in an effort to transform the Golan into 'Israel's' renewable energy capital."
The newspaper mentioned that once approved, 576 million shekels (around $183 million) will be invested for the construction of 3,300 housing units within five years.
