Palestine:Eight Stitches


CPTer injured by Israeli settlers from Havat Ma'onOn 27 July 2011, four masked settlers from the Havat Ma’on settlement outpost attacked shepherds grazing their flocks on Palestinian land and their international  accompaniers near Meshaha Hill.

The shepherds were able to get away, but settlers hit a CPTer in the head with an iron bar and destroyed his camera.  The head injury required eight stitches.

CPT and Operation Dove documented six occasions in five weeks in which settlers from Havat Ma’on attacked Palestinians or internationals near Meshaha Hill.
