Israeli soldiers prevent farmers from accessing land

Oct. 6, 2012 10:17 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 7, 2012 4:09 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers prevented farmers from tending their land in Hebron on Saturday, medics said.

Soldiers stopped over 50 farmers from accessing their olive trees on land near Adora settlement and fired tear gas to disperse them, Red Crescent official Abdul Haleem al-Jaafreh told Ma'an.

The farmers were treated at the scene for inhaling tear gas, he added.

Last October, the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees organized groups of volunteers to protect West Bank farmers from attacks by settlers during the olive harvest.

Volunteers also helped farmers to harvest groves behind Israel's separation wall, as Palestinians must apply for permits from the Israeli military authorities to secure access to their land.
