NABLUS, (PIC)-- Farmers in villages east of Nablus complained of the escalation of settlers' provocative actions over recent days that precede the season of olive harvest, especially in the vicinity of the settlements of Itamar and Elon Moreh, set up on the villages' lands.

Mohammed Omran, a farmer from the town of Deir al-Hatab, reported that elements of security patrol from the Elon Moreh settlement have been deployed in their lands, and are preventing the farmers from entering them unless they obtain a prior coordination with the Israeli Civil Administration.

The Municipality of Beit Fourik village denounced the Itamar settlers' attack on the farmers and shepherds in the vicinity of the settlement and the detention of four young men by the end of last week.

The residents of Beit Fourik village also revealed the existence of electronic monitoring devices placed inside the settlement of Itamar to monitor from a distance the movements of the villagers, and to give signals to the Israeli security patrols to chase the farmers.
