JENIN, Saturday, October 16, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers today fired tear gas canisters at Palestinians while they were harvesting their olive crops in the north of the West Bank, reported WAFA correspondent.

He said the soldiers showered the harvesters, who included landowners and volunteers from Al-Quds Open University, with teargas as they were picking olives in Zabouba village land, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, in order to force them to leave the farms located near the apartheid and separation wall.

Several people were treated for tear gas inhalation.

Palestinians, who rely on the annual olive harvest season for their livelihood, are constantly attacked by soldiers and settlers during this season.
