Havat Gilad in lines: 

 The colonists of Havat Gilad are the grandchildren of Zohar, one of the biggest colonists in the West Bank. They collaborate with Kiryat Arab' colonists to form gangs that attack farmers. 5 years ago, a number of colonists under the protection of the Israeli occupation army confiscated vast areas of (Tell, Sera, Faraata, 'Ammatin) villages to build an outpost that soon expanded to be Gilad Zohar farm. And along with its foundation, the suffering of people nearby began.
