IOF Prevents Palestinian Farmers From Harvesting Olives in Salfit

S.K | DOP -

Israeli occupation forces prevented Sunday, October 9, 2022 Palestinian farmers from harvestinل olive crops in the northern West Bank village of Haris, to the central West Bank province of Salfit.

Omar Samara, a member of the village’s council said that an Israeli army force prevented the Palestinian farmers from working in their own land, which is close to the illegal Israeli settlement of Revava, and forced them to leave it.

Israeli occupation forces and colonial settlers have intensified their attacks against Palestinian farmers and land in the occupied West Bank, particularly during the annual olive harvest season, destroying trees and preventing farmers at gunpoint from harvesting their crops.

The olive harvest season, which has just started, is one of the most important for thousands of Palestinian households in the occupied territories whose income depends heavily on the success of this season.
