Days Of Palestine – Nablus

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Tuesday prevented, for the fourth consecutive day, olive farmers from reaching their groves in the village of Qaryut, south of Nablus.

Local official Ghassan Daghlas said that many Palestinian farmers tried to reach their groves in Batisha area in the western area of Qaryut to collect olives, but soldiers attacked them with tear gas and prompted them to leave the area.

He added that the farmers do not need prior coordination or permits to enter or work their lands, describing such practice as unjustified.
