Settlers steal olive harvest in Nablus, Ramallah villages


NABLUS, October 16, 2017 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Monday stole the olive harvest of Palestinian farmers in two separate incidents in Ramallah and Nablus districts, according to a local source.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the north of West Bank, told WAFA that settlers stole the olive harvest of a farmer in the village of al-Janiya, west of Ramallah, and others stole the olive harvest of a farmer from al-Sawiya near Nablus.

Palestinians look forward to the annual olive harvest season, which is a major income source for thousands of Palestinian families in the West Bank.

In addition to stealing olive harvest from farmers, many areas planted with olive trees are closed to farmers due to their proximity to Jewish settlements or fall behind the Israeli apartheid wall.
