Israeli occupation authorities on Monday issued 20 military orders preventing Palestinians from entering their olive fields in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli occupation forces attacked on Friday Palestinian farmers demonstrating for access to their olive fields in the occupied West Bank, wounding three of them.

Israeli occupation forces attacked Palestinian activists and farmers in the town of Burka in the eastern Ramallah province as they were protesting against Israeli restrictions.

The Israeli occupation forces used tear gas and rubber coated-with-steal bullets to disperse the protesters. Three farmers were injured, while many others were affected by the teargas.

Israeli occupation authorities on Monday issued 20 military orders preventing Palestinians from entering their olive gardens in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli occupation government aims to seize hundreds of acres of Palestinian land with these decisions, which mainly target Palestinian landowners.

Since the olive harvest season began in late September, Jewish soldiers and settlers have been carrying out attacks against the farmers in various places in the occupied West Bank.

More than 800,000 settlers across 250 settlement outposts in the occupied West Bank and occupied Jerusalem make life even more difficult for Palestinians living under occupation.

Israel occupied the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 1967.
