Medical sources said Mohammad Yahia Ayesh, 55, suffered various cuts and bruises, and was also mauled by a dog owned by the settlers. He was left also suffering an anxiety attack.

Hasan Breijiyya, coordinator of the National Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Bethlehem, told the WAFA news agency that the settlers came from Efrat settlement, illegally built on Palestinian lands south of Bethlehem.

Breijiyya added that the settlers, riding horses, invaded the land of Ayesh, and attacked him when he demanded them to leave.

The land is planted with wheat and barley and is located in the Khallit an-Nakhla area, near Wady Rahhal village.

Breijiyya stated that Palestinian lands in the area are subject to frequent attacks by Israeli soldiers and settlers, as Israel is trying to illegally confiscate them for its illegitimate settlement expansion activities.

Earlier on Sunday, soldiers invaded Palestinian communities in the Hebron district, in the southern part of the West Bank, kidnapping three Palestinians.

Local sources said the army invaded Tarqoumia town, west of Hebron, and kidnapped Mohammad Hasan Abu Dabbous, 26, and Mohammad Sa’id Abu Dabbous, 31.

Soldiers also invaded the as-Sammoa’ town, south of Hebron, and kidnapped Raed Abul-Nabi Hawada, after they broke into his brother’s home and searched it.
