Israeli settlers steal olives while soldiers attack farmers in West Bank

Occupied West Bank (QNN)- A group of Israeli settlers from Shavei Shomron illegal settlement stole olives from Palestinian farms in western Nablus, while a Palestinian farmer was shot by Israeli forces near Barta’a military checkpoint in western Jenin, on Wednesday.

The Secretary of the Deir Sharaf village council, Murad Sharaf, said that some farmers got permissions to reach their own farms but they were shocked when they found that settlers stole their olive crops and broke olive trees.

In the same context, Israeli forces continue for the fifth day to prevent farmers from reaching their farms in Qaryut in southern Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli forces continue to prevent farmers from reaching their lands to harvest olive, targeting them with tear gas.

In Jenin, a Palestinian young man was shot by Israeli soldiers near Barta’a military checkpoint.

The Red Crescent said that Abdullah Itheimer (35 years old) from Tulkarem was shot in his left ankle and thigh. His wounds are medium.

Another young man was also shot at the gate of the apartheid wall in Zeita village in northern Tulkarem.

Israeli forces have been recently targeting Palestinians near the apartheid wall. Five Palestinians were shot for approaching the wall last week only.
