Settlers burn 45 dunums of land in Far’ata

A group of settlers set fire to land belonging to residents of the village Far’ata, located east of Nablus, with flames consuming 45 dunums of village agricultural land.

On 19 September, a fire was started in the northeast part of village land, meters from the Zohar Gilad settlement. Farmers had prepared crops of barely and wheat in the area, but had avoided entering it on account of the assaults they face at the hands of settlers. These attacks have happened regularly since the settlement went up on the outskirts of the village.
