A group of Israeli settlers, last night, deliberately burned the wheat crops of Rafiq Jbara, in Kafr Al-Lebed village, near Tulkarem, stretching over vast areas of Palestinian land.The Mayor of Kafr Al- Lebed, Ziad Jabâiti, said that the wheat was deliberately and completely burnt down by the settlers.
The people, then, had to call military coordination and civil defense to put out the fire.
Villagers witnessing the attack voiced the need for defense against such incidents. They added that it was not the first time where settlers burned agricultural lands, which are the the only source of income for the villagers.
In addition, they demanded compensation for the losses out of this violation.
