Israeli occupation bars Palestinian farmers from harvesting their olive crops

Nov 11,2019

Settlers from nearby settlement flooded the Palestinian farms with sewage.

Israeli occupation forces prevented Palestinians from harvesting their olive crops in the village of Sebastia, northwest of West Bank city of Nablus.

Mayor of Sebastia, Mohammed Azem, said that the Israeli occupation forces kicked farmers out of their land under the pretext of lacking prior coordination.

He said that this happened despite the fact that their lands are located beyond the fence that surrounds the illegal Israeli settlement of Shafi Shomron, which is built on Palestinian land.

Azem said that farmers found dead pigs in their land and were shocked to find that their lands were flooded with sewage by settlers from the nearby illegal settlement.
