On Saturday, illegal Israeli colonizers assaulted many Palestinians while picking their olive trees in Jamma’in town, south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank’s northern part, wounding four, including two women.
Media sources said the paramilitary colonizers invaded Palestinian olive orchards in the town and assaulted many farmers.
They added that two women, ages 66 and 67, were injured after the colonizers hurled stones at them and maced them with pepper spray.
The colonizers also unleashed their dog on another Palestinian, who was mauled to several parts of his body.
A fourth Palestinian was assaulted and tried to run away from the Israeli assailants but fell and suffered various cuts and bruises.
Palestinian medics rushed the wounded Palestinian to a local clinic.
All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.
Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”
