On Thursday, 21 October 2010, around 9:20 a.m., two Operation
Dove volunteers, who were coming back to the village of At-Tuwani after having
visited some Palestinian families in the village of Tuba, were attacked by
Israeli settlers from the outpost of Havat Ma'on (Hill 833).
While walking, the internationals received a phone call from
a Palestinian shepherd who was with his flock on a hill and warned them about
some settlers who were quickly approaching them. A few minutes after the phone call, two settlers with their
faces covered by t-shirts appeared on the top of Meshaha hill where the
internationals were walking. The
settlers started to lob stones with slingshots at the internationals who ran
away and escaped injury.
Later on, around 1:00 p.m. in the same area, a similar
incident happened to a Palestinian boy who was walking back home via the path
on Meshaha hill.
