It’s olive harvesting season, and illegal Israeli settlers won’t leave unprotected Palestinian farmers alone

Occupied West Bank (QNN)- Palestinian activists called to protect Palestinian farmers and trees of settlers’ attacks as such attacks have become more frequent recently.

Israeli illegal settlers attacked Saturday Palestinian farmers picking olives in the village of Burin, to the south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to WAFA News.
