Israeli Soldiers Assault Palestinian Protesters Trying to Plant Trees Near Nablus

Palestinian protesters clashed with settlers and Israeli soldiers as they tried to plant olive trees on land threatened with seizure in Asira al-Qibliya, south of Nablus, on Friday.

Soldiers deployed tear gas and attempted to separate protesters and Israeli settlers, one of whom could also be seen shoving a member of the press.

“We came here today to these lands threatened with confiscation, to raise a loud voice and deliver a message to the Israeli occupier that this land is Palestinian land and will remain Palestinian,” explained Muhammad Dweik, one of the planting event’s organisers.

Violence has broken out frequently between the inhabitants of Asira al-Qibliya and the nearby Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, which was partly built on land confiscated from the Palestinian village.

Settlers from the area have reportedly frequently attacked villagers but they have also assaulted Israeli soldiers and border police.
