Settlers release boars in Palestinian farmlands
Palestinian sources in Salfit, in the northern part of the West Bank, reported on Thursday that Israeli settlers released boars in Palestinian farmlands near Salfit, in the northern part of the West Bank.
Resident Abdul-Fattah Al Ghazzawi, 43, stated that the settlers released at least twenty boars that attacked his farmland and several surrounding farmlands and ate the plants.
The settlers kept the boars in the farmlands overnight and only moved them away on Thursday morning.
Al Ghazzawi added that the settlers have carried out several similar attacks against the farmlands recently, and that the number of attacks has significantly increased.
He appealed to the Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture to intervene and attempt to find a solution to this issue, especially since the wild boars are causing significant losses to the farmers,
