NABLUS, April 5, 2012 (WAFA) – Armed Jewish settlers attacked on Thursday farmers near Aqraba, southeast of Nablus, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, said settlers opened fired at farmers who were plowing their land in an area known as Wadi Yanoon without causing any injury.

Farmers confronted the settlers and forced them to leave the area before Israeli soldiers had intervened and arrested one of the farmers and seized keys for the tractors used to plow the land.

Prime Minister Salam Fayyad had earlier visited the same area to encourage farmers to work on their land.
