Israeli soldiers invaded, Saturday, a Palestinian olive orchard near Huwwara military roadblock, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and forced a farmer out of his land.
Local sources said many soldiers invaded an olive orchard, before attacking the owner while he was picking his trees, and forced him out.
They added that the Palestinian has a permit from the military to enter his olive orchard, isolated by the illegal Annexation Wall and colonies, however, the soldiers forced him out.
The attack is one of the dozens of violations targeting the Palestinian and their lands by both the soldiers and illegal colonialist settlers.
These violations escalate during the olive harvest season, especially in lands that are isolated by the illegal Annexation Wall, or close to illegal colonies and outposts, which were built on stolen Palestinian lands.
They also include cutting, burning and uprooting trees, picking olive trees and stealing the produce, in addition to assaulting the Palestinians and forcing them out of their orchards.
Israel’s colonies in the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Conventions, and various United Nations and Security Council Resolutions.
