Israelis Steal Olive Crops from Palestinian Farmers

JENIN, September 23, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Monday stole the olive crop Palestinian farmers have picked from their land in the village of Jalboon, east of Jenin, and which is isolated by the segregation wall built by Israel, according to a local official.

Deputy Mayor Khaled Abu el-Rob told WAFA that a group of settlers from illegal settlements built on Jalboon land raided a 12-dunum of land belonging to two brothers in the village and planted with olive trees and stole all the crops.

He said that this the second time in two years settlers steal the brothers’ olive crops.

Israeli settlers usually attack Palestinian farmers during the olive harvest season, particularly when the land is located near settlements.
