A Jewish shepherd was attacked Saturday morning near Havat Ma'on in Judea.

Havat Ma'on security coordinator Shimon Ben Gigi arrived at the scene to help the shepherd and was also attacked.

According to him, "One of our flocks went out to pasture in a distant area. Following this, masked individuals came and as a result I went over there."

"Immediately upon my arrival at the scene, I was attacked by a number of masked individuals at the first stage, with clubs (on the car) and in the second stage with a barrage of stones that my car took. (My windshield was broken and there are several hits to the metal). I, thank G-d, am fine."

In September, a 30-year-old Jew suffered serious injuries after being hit with a plow during a confrontation with Arabs near Havat Ma'on. The victim was evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva.
