West Bank olive farmers predict poor harvest

Farmers in occupied territory blame situation on bad weather and repeated attacks by Israeli settlers.

    Palestinian farmers in the occupied West Bank say their annual olive harvest will be well down on previous years, blaming bad weather and repeated attacks by Israeli settlers.

    According to UN figures, settlers damaged or destroyed nearly 11,000 olive trees owned by Palestinian farmers in the occupied West Bank over the last year.

    The trees were either cut down with chainsaws, knocked over by bulldozers or set on fire.
