Jewish settlers attacked Palestinian farmers and olive harvesters in the Burin village, in southern Nablus City of the northern occupied West Bank, on Saturday.

Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa News Agency reported that a group of Jewish settlers threw rocks at Palestinian farmers while they were olive-picking in their lands in an attempt to force them to leave.

Witnesses said that farmers attempted to avoid settlers.

During the past week, Jewish settlers assaulted a Palestinian farmer while harvesting his olive trees in the Deir al-Hattab village in Nablus, and other farmers in Burin; settlers also uprooted dozens of olive trees and stole harvest in the Tell village.

For hundreds of Palestinian families, olive trees are the main source of income, however, when harvest season approaches, Jewish settlers target Palestinian lands and cause severe economic damages.

Palestinian towns and villages in the Nablus area are surrounded by Israeli settlements and outposts, many of which are protected by the Israeli military and have gained notoriety for being comprised of the most extremist settlers.
