Colonial Israeli settlers attack herders in Deir Ballout

Colonial Israeli settlers attacked sheep herders today in the town of Deir Ballout, located in the province of Salfit in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources. The sources reported that a group of settlers attacked the sheep herders in the Al-Ein area south of the town, compelling them to evacuate the area under the threat of weapons. The assailants, reportedly armed, intimidated the herders and forcibly expelled them from the area, creating a perilous situation for the local pastoral community. Incidents of this nature raise concerns about the safety and security of Palestinian communities living in proximity to colonial Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.
