Six Israeli shepherds from Mitzpeh Yair in the southern Hebron Hills were violently attacked by Arabs and foreign activists Monday.

The shepherds, who were tending their sheep at the time were attacked with metal poles and rocks by a group of some 20 Arabs who were accompanied by anarchists.

The incident appears to be a planned provocation.

One of the shepherds told Tazpit News Agency that the attackers began plowing the privately, Jewish-owned grazing grounds, and when they were asked to stop the Arabs and activists physically attacked the shepherds.

Three of the shepherds were injured with head and face injuries; one suffered a concussion; another had his jaw and several teeth broken. They were evacuated by MDA to a Jerusalem hospital. IDF forces arrived on the scene and arrested several of the attackers.

The Jewish shepherds are attacked on a regular basis and carry with them cameras to document these assaults. During today’s incident they were able to film the attack, but the cameras were broken during the violent event. It is unclear if the pictures are retrievable.

Mitzpeh Yair was founded more then a decade ago in memory of Yair Har-Sinai of Susiya, located across the highway from Mitzpeh Yair. Har-Sinai, who refused to carry a weapon, was murdered by Arabs as he was grazing his sheep. His wife Dalia, with the help of workers and volunteers, maintains the farm.

Susiya is famous for the ancient Jewish synagogue, mosaics and other buildings that were uncovered at the site of this Jewish town that existed from at least the 2nd century until the 6th.

  1. Are the Jewish people allowed to carry guns with them wherever they go? PRAY FOR ISRAEL

  2. Harry Orenstein says:

    I, for one, a Jew living in the Judean mountains, have a license to carry a pistol. The license is not easily obtained.

  3. they need to protect themselves!

  4. they need to protect themselves!

  5. Ron Kall says:

    Used to be that all Israeli Jews could carry weapons! The government has turned the Jewish citizens into victims by disarming the Jews!! Insanity rules Israel!!

  6. of course, the Jews' should be armed.

  7. The Arabs attack Jews are making war against Israel, because they are trying to kill the Jews. It is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded that, in the war, Israel kill all the enemies. Therefore, the State of Israel must kill all the Arabs who attack Jews.
    The State of Israel must expel the Arabs from its territory, because it is written in the Torah, in Bamidbar (Numbers) 33:52, that God commanded Israel to expel the other inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, which is the Land of Israel, which includes all the Palestine. The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel in the year 635 CE, so that they are invaders, and must leave Israel, and return to their own land, which is Arabia. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, can convert to Judaism.

  8. Doreen White says:

    This is more of Israel's atrocities aimed at the Arabs.

  9. Gary Harper says:

    You see, in America, we would recommend that you all be armed to protect yourselves. Why do Israelis out in the fields not have guns on them? Who attacks an armed people? Time and again, unarmed people are attacked in Israel by crowds of cowards. It is a matter of personal and national defense to be armed. Remember, a sword is to be in every tent.

  10. Those who prey on farmers and shepherds will fall prey to famine.

  11. Yechiel Baum says:

    where were their security and armaments to fight back with bullets to eliminate the philistine parasites?

  12. Helena Kaski says:

    Is this the same attack? Which news should readers believe? http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=662994
