Israeli Troops Charge Palestinian Farming Family With 'Trespassing' On Their Own Land
A Palestinian farmer was detained, along with his wife and sister late on Monday, and charged with trespassing on his farmland – even though the farmer holds the title to the land, which has been in his family for generations.
Jamal Jaber Asaad, 58, was harvesting olives from his family's grove in Artas village near Bethlehem, when an Israeli from the nearby settlement of Neve Daniel, called the Israeli Security Forces (ISF). The settlement is constructed on land taken from the village of Artas.
