A Palestinian farmer was injured on Wednesday when Israeli settlers attacked people while going to their lands near the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Farmers from Qaruit village were on their way to their land to harvest their olives when settlers from the nearby illegal settlement of Aalli attacked them using rocks and batons, witnesses reported.

Mofed Jabr, a local farmer, sustained moderate wounds and was moved to nearby clinic for treatment, medical sources announced.

On Monday the Israeli military warned the residents of southern Nablus villages not to house international supporters.

The decision, not new in nature especially since Israel deported dozens of activists and denied entry to others, was made particularly to sabotage the olive harvest season as activists visit the West Bank to help the villagers in harvesting their Olive trees, and in an attempt to protect them from settler attacks.
