On 25 June 2011, eleven Israeli
settlers armed with stones and knives attacked Shaadi Muhamari and his brother
Kamal Muhamari as they grazed their sheep in Meshaha Valley, next to the
Palestinian village of At-Tuwani. The
attack occurred around 10:00 a.m.
According to Shaadi Muhamari, the
settlers came down from the Israeli outpost of Havat Ma'on. Some of the settlers were masked as they
ran toward the shepherds throwing stones, yelling blasphemies against Islam,
and saying that internationals were now not present to protect them. A settler attacked Shaadi Muhamriâ€™s donkey
with a knife, and when he attempted to stop the attacker and protect his
donkey, settlers hit him with stones in the back and torso. The attack left Shaadi Muhamari with
bruises and welts on his back.
