Settlers Attack Olive Groves in Jub al-Theeb, East of Bethlehem
Bethlehem – PNN - Israeli settlers with the protection and support of soldiers destroyed olive groves in a farm in Jub al-Theeb, east of Bethlehem, on Wednesday morning.  Image After being stopped by a group of international solidarity workers, one settler took revenge on Thursday morning by attacking a herd of sheep.  Mubarak Zowahera, of Jub al-Theeb, told PNN this morning that the group of settlers came to cut down his olive trees near the Israeli settlement of Zibar. A group of international solidarity activists came later to survey the damage to his fields.  Then early Thursday morning, one settler attacked a herd of sheep in Zowahera’s olive grove, which had been “cut down and vandalized” the day before. This action is believed to be in response to the solidarity activists stopping the settlers’ assault. Zowahera told PNN he was working to expose the occupation policies by taking pictures of what happened and presenting them to the Israeli human rights group B’tselem.
