Jewish settlers on Tuesday chased Palestinian shepherds off their pastures in the Khillet Makhoul community, in the northern Jordan Valley, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
Aref Daraghmeh, a local activist, told WAFA that Jewish settlers chased the shepherds as solidarity activists were in the area to monitor the settlers’ harassment of the Palestinians.

Khillet Makhoul has been subject to daily attacks by Jewish settlers for two weeks now.
Settler violations include raiding the area late at night, assaulting citizens, chasing off shepherds, and kicking them out of their grazing areas.
