Today at the South Hebron Hills, we accompanied Palestinian shepherds from Um el Amad to their grazing land near the Israeli settlement Otniel. It has been two years since we visited this beautiful place, until this week soldiers arrested two young shepherds, they beat them and in the middle of the night they dropped them somewhere to look for their way home. Was a quiet day where we arrived with the herd everywhere we wanted. Could have been completely pastoral if not for the line of soldiers guarding we won’t attack the settlement.
