A number of Palestinian rioters attacked Jewish shepherds today (Tuesday) near the settlement of Rimonim in Binyamin, they beat them with clubs and stones.
The incident began when Palestinians began attacking a Jewish shepherd from the agricultural farm next to the settlement of Rimonim. In response, he called for the help of his friends who arrived at the scene. At that point dozens of Palestinian rioters started arriving and attacked the shepherds with clubs and stones. The cell phones of the shepherds were broken by the rioters, and they were beaten one by one and 4 of them were later taken to the hospital. One of the shepherds described: "There is not a single place in my body that was not hit, they came with murder in their eyes."
"Look of murder in their eyes"
A Jewish shepherd who was taken to the Shaare Tzedek hospital recounts the moments of horror: "I was herding the flock of sheep near the farm and suddenly four masked Arabs with clubs ran towards me. I immediately called the other shepherds on the farm who reported to the army and ran to the scene. Within seconds, dozens more Arab rioters came running to the scene. They just started breaking me apart with stones and clubs from all directions."
The shepherd continued and described the moments of the severe lynching: "There is not a single part of my body that did not receive a blow. Another guy who was with me caught a rock in the crotch, and rioters broke his finger with a club. The other guys that came were also injured one by one. My cell phone caught several blows and stopped working. They were six times as many as us and came with a look of murder in their eyes," said the shepherd.
According to the shepherds: "This morning's attack joins a series of attacks against Jewish shepherds that have occurred in recent times in Judea and Samaria. The shepherds, who in the eyes of the Arabs symbolize the front line of the settlement, are a convenient and constant target."
