RAMALLAH, Wednesday, October 23, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers attacked today Palestinian farmers while attending to their land in the Ramallah area village of Umm Safa, according to Marwan Sabah, head of Umm Safa village council.
He told WAFA that 10 settlers and soldiers attacked the farmers and prevented them from staying on their land.
He said the soldiers held for several hours two employees of the village council who were in that area before releasing them.
Sabah said a settler runs a cattle ranch in the illegal settlement of Halamish, near Umm Safa, and he often attacks farmers who attend to their lands in that area.
Palestinians who try to defend themselves against settlers’ violence often get arrested and imprisoned under various pretexts, but mainly threatening the lives of the settlers, while no settler is arrested for attacking Palestinians.
