justghassan | December 29, 2010

The Olive Tree Campaign (OTC) seeks to replant olive trees in areas trees have been uprooted and destroyed or in areas where the fields are threatened to be confiscated by the Israeli military Occupation and settlers. Since the year 2001 Israel through its military and settlers in the West Bank and Gaza has uprooted, burnt and destroyed more than 548,000 olive trees that belong to Palestinian farmers and land owners

Fall 2010 was marked by a drastic raise in attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinians.

According to a report published by the United Nation’s Office for the coordination of Humanitarian Affairs during the olive harvest 50 incidents of attacks against Palestinians were reported.
According to Ahmad Jaradat, the AIC coordinator of the Settlers’ Violence Project, attacks on Palestinians during the last 4 years we have seen attacks on Palestinians during olive harvest.

  2. My check still hasn’t cleared the bank. Did you plant the five trees I ordered? You didn’t acknowledge receipt of my check.

    • Roy,

      Your generosity is appreciated even by Aletho News which is not connected with the olive tree campaign in any way other than the dissemination of their informational press releases.
