Days Of Palestine – Jordan Valley
Israeli settlers on Monday morning destroyed Palestinian wheat fields with poisonous chemicals near al-Sakout village in the northern Jordan Valley.
Human rights activist Aref Daraghmeh said that Israeli settlers sprayed about 12 dunums of wheat fields with poisonous pesticides destroying and burning crops.
Daraghmeh said that settler attacks on Palestinian farmlands in the Jordan Valley fall in line with a large-scale scheme by the Israeli authorities aimed at forcing the Palestinians out of the area.
Al-Sakout is a Palestinian village on the border with Jordan. It was destroyed by the Israeli occupation army in 1967 along with 32 villages in the northern Jordan Valley.
