Israeli soldiers stationed at a gate in the illegal wall, west of Tulkarem stopped farmers from a nearby village reaching their land on Saturday.

Troops refused to open the gate to allow the Palestinian farmers from the nearby village of Far'un to get to their lands in order to collect their olive crop. Farmers said the army gave them no reason for this action.

Local farmers stated that even when the army did allow them to pass to their land on the other side of the Wall, it was only at seven o'clock in the morning and another time at four o'clock, the rest of the day it was kept closed.
