HEBRON, Saturday, October 29, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers continued today their daily attacks against Palestinian civilians, mainly farmers harvesting their olive crops, with an attack on farmers picking their olives in Tel Rumeida neighborhood in the southern West Bank occupied city of Hebron, according to local sources.
They told WAFA that settlers from the illegal settlement of Beit Hadasa, located in the heart of occupied Hebron, attacked, under Israeli army protection, Palestinian olive harvesters and volunteers helping them and stealing their harvest.
Settlers also stole olive harvest in the village of Deir Sharaf, west of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to Ghassan Daghlas, a local official.
He told WAFA that the settlers sneaked into the fields close to the illegal settlement of Shavi Shomron and stole the olive harvest, adding that fire broke out in this land and the Israeli soldiers prevented the village residents from reaching the land to put off the fire.
Settlers have been attacking Palestinians harvesting their olive crops in several areas located near the settlements in the occupied West Bank and either prevent them from continuing in the harvest or steal their crops.
None of the attackers have ever been arrested or persecuted for their actions while soldiers provide them with protection and attack the Palestinians who attempt to defend themselves or push the settlers back.
