NABLUS, Sunday, October 20, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers today forced Palestinian farmers picking olives out of their land in the village of Qaryut, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to local sources.
Tayseer Mansour, head of the Qaryut village council, told WAFA that Israeli forces kicked the farmers out of their lands for the third day in a row, and prevented them from picking olives, claiming that they needed an Israeli permit to do so.
He added that entering the lands of the aforementioned village does not require an Israeli permit, as it is far away from any Israeli settlements.
Attacks by Israeli army and settlers against vulnerable Palestinian communities have been on the rise since the beginning of the olive harvest season in occupied Palestine.
Yesterday, three Palestinian villagers sustained injuries after they were attacked by settlers in the village of Burin, near Nablus, while picking olives.
