Some saplings are more equal

For further information:

On Monday, November 19, 2018, Israeli soldiers came to Deir Hajle (south of Jericho) and uproted 170 date palm saplings that a Palestinian farmer planted in land he had leased from the Muslim Waqf. The soldiers also proceeded to confiscate the farmer`s irrigation system.

A year ago the Israeli army uprooted 150 saplings of that same Palestinian farmer.

Nearby, Jewish settler-colonists took over Waqf land and planted 3000 date palms. Needless to say these were never uprooted by the army


On Thursday, November 22, 2018, Israeli government agents escorted by police demolished five houses in the Bedouin town of Rahat, fourth district. They proceeded to demolish yet again the unrecognized Bedouin village of Al Araqib, for the nth time, and detained two inhabitants for interrogation.
