Farmers march toward site of clash

Nablus - Ma'an - The Union of Agricultural Work Committees in the northern West Bank village of Aqraba organized a large march Thursday toward lands confiscated by Israeli settlements.

The march, organized under the Right to Live banner, was supported by Norwegian People's Aid and attended by members of the UAWC from villages across the Nablus region, who showed support and solidarity with the Aqraba farmers.

Protesters were angry over an incident that occurred the week before that saw settlers from the nearby Itamar settlement confront farmers from the village who were tending their lands.

Organizers said the march, which saw protesters return to the site of the incident en masse, was a demonstration against intimidation and a demand to allow Palestinian farmers access to their lands.
