»Colonialists Set Attacks on West Bank Farmers – IMEMC News


Israeli citizens on Saturday attacked a Palestinian farmer alongside his family while taking olives in the Jabal Jales area, east of the city of Hebron, in the West West.

Local resident Rashed al-Tamini, who collects olives with his family, said the settlers from a nearby Israeli illegal settlement stoned her, spreading panic among them, including children. No injuries were reported, according to WAFA.

Approximately a few days ago, the settlers destroyed and uprooted fully cultivated olive trees belonging to the al-Tamimi family in the same area.

Also on Saturday, the Palestinians who planted trees on the shores of Urif village in the north of the West Bank were attacked by Israeli soldiers, both with live and rubber bullets, and with tear gas, according to a local official.

The Fateh Movement, the Commission for Wall and Land Resistance, and the Palestinian Authority's Agricultural Department at Nablus, joined hands in planting trees on the Urif land threatened with Israeli takeover.

However, even before the start of tree planting, Israeli soldiers in the area fired live round bullets of rubber-coated metal and tear gas at the gathering, causing suffocating cases and forcing activists to disperse and cover, according to Ghassa Daghlas, from the Commission of Resistance to Walls and Settlements.

Urif is constantly attacked by Jewish settlers who support an Israeli army who live in illegal settlements south of Nablus.

Medical sources said three Palestinians were injured by live bullets drawn by soldiers, one reported in serious condition and transported to the hospital. Others have been treated for rubber-coated bullet wounds and for inhalation of tear gas.
