Israeli settlers on Sunday attacked an elderly Palestinian man and his son in the village of Shushahala, south of Al-Khader town in the Bethlehem governorate.

Citizen Muhannad Salah, a resident of the villager, reported that he, accompanied by his elderly father, were grazing sheep in the village’s lands. Suddenly, armed settlers from the EliAzar, a nearby illegal settlement, attacked them and threw stones at them, and tried to force them to leave their land, at gunpoint, but they confronted them.

Salah stressed that he is repeatedly attacked by the occupation forces and settlers, with the aim of forcing the family to leave their lands in a move aimed at seizing them.
