Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank killed a 68-year-old Palestinian shepherd on Wednesday who was carrying a shotgun as protection against rustlers.

The Israeli army said Mohammed Abahereh opened fire at soldiers on routine patrol and they shot back, killing him.

Abahereh’s son, Taher, who was helping him herd the sheep in the early morning darkness in al-Yamoun village, said rustlers had tried in the past to steal the animals.

“He was locking the gate and he heard something around us. He thought that it was thieves, so he went out with his shotgun and was shot immediately,” Taher said.
