22/02/14: SFP plant olive trees in Jeet and settlers attack

On Saturday morning activists from SFP joined the village of Jeet, in Qalqliya, in planting olive trees in an act of steadfastness. The activists planted several areas of land before proceeding to land stolen by the illegal settlement of Gilad. The activists successfully planted 15 olive trees inside the illegal settlement on Jeet land.

They were then spotted by a group of extremists settlers who ran towards then accompanied by several cars. The activists were able to return to the village, but the terrorist settlers then attacked the village, burning a car and attacking houses on the edge of the village.

In no more provocation than farmers wishing to plant their land, the settlers committed acts of terrorism. SFP calls on all people of good conscience around the world to abide by the Palestinian request for a boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Apartheid Israel, to hold it to account for its war crimes, in the absence of action by international governments. Villagers like Jeet are bravely struggling for their freedom. We ask you to support them in their struggle. To find out how to boycott and join the campaign please click here.
