Ta’ayush activist @Molchansky reports IOF issued a closed military zone warrant to shepherds that attempted to lead their herds near the Palestinian village Jawayus and Mitzpe Yair outpost. The soldiers refused to answer questions regarding the authority and identity of the IOF soldier who signed the warrant. During the issuing of the closed military warrants and the following debate with the soldiers , settlers verbally harassed the farmers and activists and hurled stones towards the herd. The soldiers attempted to arrest an activist and charge with insult of public official during his service. Later on, the settlers invaded the village of Jawayush with dogs and sent the assault dogs to attack the herds. During the settlers’ invasion to Jawayus, they pushed and shoved local residents and took photographs of solar facilities.
