Israeli authorities deny Salfit farmers access to olive crops
In the same context, several Israelis residing in the Tafuh settlement in east Salfit attacked farmers in the town of Yasuf, taking their olives, and insulting and unleashing dogs against their women.
Witnesses said settlers came from the Tafuh settlement near the Za’tara checkpoint carrying firearms, and threatened the farmers and demanded that they leave the fields amid claims that the land was part of the settlement. The assailants attempted to take by force of arms a horse belonging to one of the farmers.
