Mohammad had faced a similar aggression when colonists uprooted tens of olive seedlings from his land. Preventing farmers from reaching their lands: The Israeli Occupation forces have been preventing Palestinian farmers from reaching their fields in areas alike Beit Safa, Ein al Beida, and Abu al Reesh. Furthermore, they chase the farmers out and sometimes attack them even when being accompanied by foreign consolidators. The Palestinians tend to preserve their land and prevent possible confiscations.
