Israeli settlers unleash sheep on Palestinian olive grove

Oct. 16, 2008 1:28 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 16, 2008 1:28 P.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - Settlers attempting to impede Palestinian olive harvests initiated a bizarre new tactic on Thursday, apparently leaving flocks of sheep at olive groves to feed on the small trees.

Residents told Ma'an that Israeli settlers "dumped dozens of sheep" on Palestinian farmland neighboring the illegal settlement of Itamar, where the animals damaged and devoured dozens of olive and fig trees.

57-year-old Jamil Daraqshah claimed that he saw an Israeli shepherd at his farm in the village of Awarta, which is south of Nablus, just days before. Also evidence, he said, is that Palestinians are not permitted to enter the area without first coordinating with the Palestinian-Israeli liaison office in Nablus.
