The farmers used the tools to pick the olives in their lands located near the illegal Jewish settlement of Shavot Rahel were missing.
Daghlas added that the Palestinian farmers managed to stop the Jewish settlers who were stealing their crops and kick them out of their lands.
Following attack by Jewish settlers on a lone Palestinian woman picking her olives in Yasuf, Israeli soldiers arrived to say that olive picking there was only permitted on Tuesday so they may provide "protection" against settler terror.

Jewish settlers intensify their assault against Palestinian farmers during the olive harvest season, considered one of the main sources of income for Palestinians. They often synchronize their raids and assaults with Israeli soldiers, who provide them with cover and protection.
