Since the start of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank in 1967, Wadi Juheish has been subjected to settler violence and restrictive measures.

Lijbour highlighted acts of harassment, physical assaults by settlers, blocking roads, chasing herders and denying them access to pastures.

According to the Centre, illegal Israeli settlers aim at evict the Palestinians from their lands to control the top of the hill where the Palestinians are currently residing due to its strategic location.
