Settlers release wild and dangerous dogs around farm lands in the Jordan valley

IMEMC & Agencies

A group of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Routem released wild and dangerous dogs onto Palestinian farm lands on Wednesday with the intention of killing the farmers’ sheep.

Farmers said that the dogs are a serious threat to their sheep and their owners. They were released on lands confiscated by the settlers three years ago in order prevent Palestinian land owners from the West Bank city of Tubass from reaching their lands located in the Jordan Valley in the West Bank.
