Jewish Farmers Warn: Next Theft Will End in Murder


Farmers, shepherds and political leaders from Judea and Samaria (Shomron) came together this weekend to give thanks to Hashomer Yosh, a civilian guard group which for the past year has made it its aim to defend Israeli farms in the region from attack.

Among those present were MKs Orit Struk and Zevulun Kalfa of the Jewish Home party. Jewish farmers in the region have been suffering from frequent theft at the hands of Palestinian Authority criminals, who take the animals they steal to PA-controlled towns, leaving Israeli law enforcement unable to intervene.
