One of the affected farmers “Abdullah An-Na’asan” told LRC observer: “We own an 8 dunums piece of land in “Abu Al Muwas” area, the plot is adjacent to “Adei Ad” settlement, since 2000 we are only allowed to access the land in harvesting and cultivating seasons and only for few hours, settlers take advantage of the fact we are not allowed to reach our lands to sabotage our trees, in 2010, 45 olive trees were cut , 2013 settlers carried out another assault in the same area”
