NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Armed settlers stopped Palestinian farmers from working on their land in the West Bank village of Qaryut, south of Nablus, Monday, officials said.
Mofeed Jameel, the secretary of Qaryut's village council, said gun-wielding Israelis from the settlement of Shiloh ordered the farmers to leave farmland surrounding the settlement. He added that residents of the village have a decision from the Israeli Attorney General that allows them to work on the land in question, an area of about 50 dunums.
Palestinian Authority settlement affairs officer Ghassan Doughlas confirmed the incident and also alleged that Israeli soldiers were present with the settlers.
is not truthful.
The case is in judicial process and only the dumb intervention by a division commander temporarily permitted a part of the disputed fields to be worked and that didn't happen today.
But Rabbi Ascherman, clergyman to his Palestinian flock, is seeking, it appears, a provocative situation.
