09/03/15: Settlers maraud across the northern West Bank, destroying olive trees and attacking farmers

On Monday 9 March Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian land in the northern West Bank area of Palestine. Settlers cut ancient olive trees belonging to the villages of Burin and Salem, near Nablus city.

In Salem, Jewish settlers from the illegal colony known as Elon Moreh bulldozed Palestinian land and cut 300 olive trees belonging to the Palestinian village of Salem. This act of terrorism was partnered with a confiscation order given to Salem villagers by the occupying Israeli Army. The order stated farmers were prohibited from cultivating their land, a vital activity for farmers to ensure a good crop of olives in the harvest. This is a standard tactic used by the Army to facilitate the illegal expansion of the colonies.

In Burin 75 ancient olive trees belonging to Ahmed Abdel Fatah, were cut by marauding Jewish settlers from the notoriously violent colony of Bracha, built on stolen village land.

Farmers, with DCO coordination, had gone to their land near the illegal colony only to be attacked by settlers, as Israeli soldiers looked on, refusing to intervene to stop attacks. It was during this assault that the farmers realised the terrorist settlers had also cut their trees.

SFP has and continues to support the villages of Salem and Burin, regularly supporting farmers to attend to their land whenever they wish. SFP also has purchased and planted new olive tree saplings in both villages to reinforce farmers, villagers and Palestinians steadfastness on their land. Just 2 months previously, on land today attacked by settlers, SFP planted olive trees with villagers from Salem.

We welcome donations in order for us to support more farmers and villages and reclaim the land from Apartheid Israel’s colony ambitions. Please click here to find out how to donate to our olive tree campaign.
