Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Palestinian farmers threatened by Israeli settlers as olive harvest approaches” – below is their description.

Palestinian activists say newer generations of settlers are more violent, so they formed local committees to protect Palestinian farmers from increasing attacks.

Settlers also deliberately damage olive trees, hurting the farmers who rely on their annual harvests.

Farmers fear they’ll face more violence during this year’s upcoming olive harvest.
