HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers attacked residents of the Hebron district village of Susiya while they were picking olives Saturday, injuring three Palestinians, a village councilman said.

Jehad al-Nawal, head of Susiya's village council, told Ma'an that the settlers beat and injured Nasser, Khalil and Sameeha al-Nawaj'a.

Al-Nawal added that settlers often target Palestinians during the olive harvest and warned fellow villagers of the potential for further attacks.

According to a 2012 report on Israeli settler violence released by the Palestine Center, a Washington-based nonprofit, every year the olive harvest period sees the highest peak in attacks on Palestinian civilians.

"According to a 2012 report on Israeli settler violence released by the Palestine Center, a Washington-based nonprofit, every year the olive harvest period sees the highest peak in attacks on Palestinian civilians." Maybe Zionists just become especially violent in the fall. It might be Zionist mating season or something.

Tell those bloody feral settlers to grow their own olives - and in Israel, not the occupied territories.

There are organizations that welcome volunteers to accompany the Palestinians on their land when they go to pick olives during the harvest season...to provide support and to assist in a peaceful manner, as they can be kept or blocked from moving freely on their own private property.
