Gaza, ALRAY - Dozens of Israeli settlers attacked on Thursday afternoon farmers Burin village in the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus, driving them out of their lands.

Nemer al-Tirawi of Burin told Safa Press Agency that "nearly 100 settlers from the Yitzhar settlement assaulted us while picking olive in our fields southwest of Burin, and stoned us,"

He added that "the settlers intimidated us with the sticks, sharp instruments and pipes they were armed with, and expelled us,"

He pointed to other groups of settlers who attacked al-Zabin and al-Tirawi family of the same village despite the company of international solidarity activists who came to support the people of the village during the olive harvest.

Subsequently, Israeli occupation forces stormed the village and confrontations took place between soldiers and dozens of youths who threw them with stones.

Palestinian farmers living in the rural villages of the West Bank experienced tens of attacks during this olive harvest season by Israeli settlers from the neighboring settlements.
