The Israeli Occupation Authorities attack farmers west of Hebron and prevent them from picking olives
Hebron – Several farmers were suffocated after inhaling tear gas west of Hebron. Moreover, the Israeli soldiers prevented around 50 farmers from picking olives and forced them to leave their lands under tear gas barrage.
The farmers said that they went to pick their olives from their lands adjacent to “Adora” colony west of Hebron, and upon their arrival they were attacked by Israeli troops and forced them to evacuate their lands after throwing dozens of tear gas canisters.
The farmers reported that the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) told them: “you can pick olives after the end of the Jewish holidays.”
