Israeli settlers chop Palestinian olive trees; destroy farmland in northern West Bank
As Palestinian farmers across the West bank prepare for the annual olive harvest, several attacks by Israeli settlers have destroyed the harvest of a number of these farmers. On Saturday near Nablus, Israeli settlers chopped down over one hundred olive trees, just a few days before they were scheduled to be harvested.
That incident took place in Deir Sharaf village, south of Nablus in the northern part of the West Bank, and followed an attack by Israeli settlers on Friday in the same area. In that incident, Israeli settlers assaulted Palestinian farmer Abdul-Rahman Ibrahim Awad while he was picking olives on his land in the village of Jammain, threatened him at gunpoint and forced him to leave his olive harvesting.
