Solidarity activists denied entry to Kafr Qaddum olive groves

Qalqiliya - Ma'an - Israeli forces prevented foreign solidarity activists from helping Palestinian farmers harvest their olives in the village of Kafr Qaddum on Sunday.

Village leader Muhammad Shteiwi said Israeli authorities gave farmers permission to harvest their olives, but denied entry to the foreign solidarity activists who came to help the farmers.

When they arrived to their fields, farmers were surprised to discover that Israeli settlers had cut down more than 40 of the trees, Shteiwi said. He added that solidarity activists gathered in front of the eastern entrance to the Kafr Qaddum agricultural lands to protest being denied entry.
