AT-TUWANI: Settlers harass Palestinian shepherds and assault international

 At approximately
9:15 a.m. on 27 July 2011, masked settlers from the Havat Ma’on outpost, armed
with stones and an iron bar, harassed three DSC01282Palestinian shepherds and attacked
two international observers.

 The shepherds
were out with their flocks on Palestinian land near Meshaha hill when the four
masked settlers attacked them. 
They were able to getaway, but the settlers then hit a CPTer in the
head with an iron bar and destroyed his camera.  He went to the hospital in Yatta and received eight stitches.

Christian Peacemaker Teams and Operation Dove have documented six occasions
since June 22, 2011 in which settlers from Havat Ma’on have attacked Palestinians
or internationals near Meshaha Hill.
