Nablus (QNN)- Israeli illegal settlers on Sunday stole olive crops harvested from Palestinians lands, which are located inside the fenced area near the illegal settlement of Itamar, east of Nablus. They also cut olive trees and drowned agricultural lands with wastewater.
The head of Awarta village council, Saad Awwad, said that the Palestinian farmers, who finally got to reach their farms after five days of trials, were shocked to see that Israeli settlers stole crops and broke trees.
Awwad said that every year Israeli authorities allow Palestinian farmers to harvest crops from their lands, which are located outside the fenced area, for five days only, while it allows them to harvest crops of lands, inside the fenced area, for only one day.
The size of the village’s land, which farmers are not allowed to enter unless they get permissions is 8000 dunams outside the fenced area and 5000 dunams.
Israeli settlers also drowned agricultural lands in Deir Hatab in eastern Nablus with wastewater as soon as native Palestinian farmers got into their farms to harvest their crops.
