TEHRAN (IQNA) – Israeli soldiers and settlers with dogs attacked Palestinian activists and journalists during an anti-settlement activity in Khirbet al-Tawimin community in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank on Saturday.

 

Soldiers attacked the protest activity, assaulting the activists and throwing sound grenades at them while declaring the area a closed military zone, WAFA news agency reported

The settlers from the illegal Susya settlement also attacked journalists covering the event and chased them with their dogs causing injuries to some, including WAFA staff Hamza Hattab, who required hospitalization, and Mashhour Wahwah.
