Shrinking space for Palestinian farmers

Palestinian farmers are being driven off land that Israel has labelled a nature reserve.

    The life of Palestinian farmers in the occupied West Bank is becoming increasingly difficult.

    Palestinian farmers are being driven off land that Israel has labelled a nature reserve.

    Israel's decision to declare this area a nature reserve and frequent harassment by Israeli settlers have created severe limits on the land farmers can cultivate.

    Palestinians here say Israel only declared the area a nature reserve to stop them using the land.
