Israel settlers attack Palestinian farmers in Jordan Valley

MEMO | March 16, 2020

While Palestinians are busy fighting the outbreak of the coronavirus, Israeli occupation settlers have increased their attacks in the occupied Jordan Valley, Al Mugtama Magazine reported yesterday.

The armed settlers carried out a wide-scale campaign of attacks on the Palestinian herders and farmers. They stole scores of animals and damaged wide swathes of farmlands.

“The situation in the Jordan Valley is very difficult,” Mahmoud Bsharat, who has received an expropriation order for his farm, told the magazine.

He said that the “gangs of settlers” cut trees and steal cattle, as well as opening fire at the Palestinian shepherds. They also steal tractors from Palestinian farmers and damage their farms.

Activist Aref Daraghmeh told the magazine that Jewish settlers carried out 45 attacks over the past few days in the Jordan Valley, noting that they stole farming equipment in addition to damaging farms and homes.

He also said that the occupation imposed high fines on Palestinians and has been carrying out military drills that damage their crops.

This, Daraghmeh explained, was part of the settlers’ efforts to force Palestinians out of the area in preparation for its annexation by Israel.

The Palestinian Authority warned that Israel may use the state of emergency brought on by the COVID-19 to carry out its “colonial” plans in the occupied West Bank based on what was announced in the US ‘deal of the century’.

  1. In his great work, Seven Pillars of Wisdom, T.E. Lawrence says of the Jewish settlers in Palestine in his day (1918) that they were ‘unable to endure contact with others not of their race… the most foreign, uncharitable part of the whole population.’ Sounds as though they haven’t changed a bit.

  3. These settlers are very brave people, brave enough to assault unarmed, oppressed Palestinians. The Pals have no army and are at the mercy of the Jewish State. Brave settlers!

    It is a strike against Judaism that its faithful could behave thus. Every attack against Palestinians is, at the same time, a strike against Judaism and Zionist narrative. This is part of the cost.

    • It seems rather strange that “Terrorists” have been able to acquire unlimited Weapons, Ordinance, fleets of vehicles, ammunition etc, to fight against Iraqui’s, Syrians, Yemeni’s, but the Palestinians are about the only people in the Middle East who have NO SUCH SUPPORT…….How very strange!…..How does that all work????
      Maybe Mike Pompeo(We lied, we cheated, we stole)can explain why the Palestinians are the only people in the Middle East who AREN’T ARMED TO THE TEETH…..??

      • Ummm. Did I forget to complete my thought, or was/am I dreaming? I intended my full comment to be this or close to it: ‘Effing Sadistic Satanists. “Final solution” needed to eliminate this scourge…faster, please.’
