Israeli settlers and army often chase the shepherds and force them to leave the pastures or confiscate their herd.

Israeli Jewish settler rammed his car into herd of sheep in occupied West Bank, killing nine sheep and wounding 11 others, eyewitnesses said on Sunday.

The herd is owned by a Palestinian farmer in Masafer Yatta in the south of the occupied West Bank, the eyewitnesses said.

Coordinator of the Popular and National Committees in Yatta and Southern Hebron, Rateb al-Jabour, said that the Israeli settler deliberately rammed into the herd owned by Ayed al-Shawaheen near the illegal Israeli settlement of Maon.

Masafer Yatta residents, who are mainly Bedouins, make a living of raising livestock, mainly sheep, and they often roam the open pastures in that area to feed their herd.
