On Friday morning, the Israeli military prevented Palestinian farmers from working on their lands, adjacent to the separation wall, in the western part of the town of Beit Ula, northwest of Hebron.Issa al-‘Emleh, coordinator of the National Campaign Against the Wall, reported that the Israeli military closed entrances and roads leading to the Valley al-Gelmoun, west of the town of Beit Ula. The closures prevented farmers and members of the National Committee Against the Wall from accessing their lands, located next to the separation wall.

The residents were trying to reach their orchards in order to prepare the ground for planting olive trees.

Al-‘Emleh added that the army continues to prevent Palestinian farmers from harvesting their own lands, adjacent to the wall, under the pretext that such lands are ‘closed military zones.’
