Village Council head Ra’ed Jubara told LRC:

“This project must be related to a large colonial scheme to establish an Industrial area in Wad At-Teen, which will confiscate hundreds of dunums from Shofa, Jubara and Far’un and establishing a vital road for the project, which will perpetuate stealing and Judaizing the land.” It must be noted that Far’un is one of the most targeted village in TulKarm area;

Far’un is located 3 km to the south of TulKarm, edging the armistice line. Its total area is 8000 dunums which were reduced to 4000 due to the construction of the segregation wall. It is inhabited by 3500 people, most of them are farmers, whose lives were turned into a nightmare after the occupation deprived 400 farmers from their only source of income, rendering 69% of the village’s people unemployed.

Most of the village lands behind the segregation wall are planted with olives and citrus; however, the planted area is shrinking due to water shortage and land confiscations, noting that 40 % of the village’s income depend on agriculture.
