On Friday, a group of fanatic illegal Israeli colonists, squatting on Palestinian lands in direct violation of International Law, invaded Palestinian olive orchards near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and attacked the families.
Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the illegal colonists invaded Palestinian olive orchards in Sheikh Bishir area, east of Jaloud village, south of Nablus.
Daghlas added that the assailants assaulted several Palestinians, and chased others, in addition to preventing them from harvesting their olive trees.
These violations escalate during the olive harvest season, especially in lands that are isolated by the illegal Annexation Wall, or close to illegal colonies and outposts, which were built on stolen Palestinian lands.
They also include cutting, burning and uprooting trees, picking olive trees and stealing the produce, in addition to assaulting the Palestinians and forcing them out of their orchards.
Israel’s colonies in the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Conventions, and various United Nations and Security Council Resolutions.
