JERICHO (Ma'an) -- An Israeli settler ran over a flock of sheep belonging to a Palestinian shepherd near the al-Zubeidat village in the occupied West Bank district of Jericho on Friday, causing the death of 25 of the sheep, according to Palestinian sources.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that an Israeli settler was driving at a high speed and ran over the flock of sheep while they were crossing the road.

The Palestinian shepherd requested that Israeli authorities penalize the Israeli settler and provide compensation for the losses.

Although Israeli authorities do not make settlement population statistics public, the Applied Research Institute - Jerusalem has reported a population of some 750,000 Israeli settlers residing in illegal settlements scattered across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, although most estimates range between 500,000 and 600,000 settlers.

All Israeli settlements on Palestinian land are considered illegal under international law.
