Israeli settlers, today, stole an olive harvest belonging to Palestinian farmers in the village of al-Lubban al-Sharqiya, to the south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local source.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the area, told WAFA that, according to a number of Palestinian farmer, Israeli settlers from the nearby illegal settlement of Elieh had stolen the harvest of about 900 of their olive trees.

The West Bank has been witnessing a wave of settler attacks and agricultural terrorism as Palestinian farmers began the year’s olive harvest. Attacks were mainly in northern villages near Nablus and Salfit governorates, which have the largest concentration of illegal Israeli settlements.

Palestinians look forward to the annual olive harvest season, which is a major income source for thousands of families in the West Bank.

In addition to stealing olives from farmers, many areas planted with olive trees are closed to farmers due to their proximity with Jewish settlements, or fall behind the Israeli apartheid wall.
