Israeli TV, Channel 2, published a video showing a group of extremist Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian villagers picking olive trees in their own land, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The settlers targeted Palestinians picking olives in their land in Burin village, south of Nablus. The attack took place on Sunday October 20 2013.
The video shows masked settlers attacking the farmers, throwing stones at them, and violently beating a Palestinian man.
The army was not present in the area, and the Palestinian villagers responded by throwing stones at the Israeli assailants.
Extremist Israeli settlers always escalate their attacks against the Palestinians and their lands during the Olive Harvest season.
Such attacks includes assaulting the villagers, uprooting and cutting trees, and burning Palestinian orchards and farmlands.
In some cases, the settlers picked Palestinian olive trees and stole the produce.
