In a disturbing incident that unfolded last night, settlers backed by the Israeli occupation forces set fire to dozens of acres of farmland in the village of Beit Dajan, located east of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.
Local sources reported that settlers, accompanied by Israeli soldiers, stormed the area known as Al-Zaouia, east of the village, and set ablaze numerous acres of olive trees, as well as burning haystacks belonging to local farmers.
Eyewitnesses revealed that upon hearing the attack, the Palestinians rushed to defend their land.
The Israeli occupation forces intervened and responded by firing live ammunition and tear gas towards Palestinian civilians.
The village of Beit Dajan has been a repeated target for settler attacks, causing significant damage to the agricultural sector and sparking outrage among Palestinians who view these actions as a direct violation of their rights and an attempt to forcibly confiscate their land.
