‘Ofra residents use dogs to keep Palestinians off farmand’ | Israel | Jerusalem Post

Settlers in Ofra are using attack dogs to keep Palestinians from cultivating land they own near the settlement, the human rights organization Yesh Din charged in a petition filed in the High Court of Justice earlier this week.

According to the petition, “ring roads surrounding and fencing in hundreds of dunams of privately owned land were built around the settlement and the outposts surrounding it, and other physical obstacles, including earth embankments and fences” have also been erected.

Along parts of the fence, the settlers have posted assault dogs to help keep the legitimate landowners out, the petitioners charged.
