Israeli Army prevents villagers from feeding livestock

Military prevents them from walking more than two meters in direction of illegal settlement

This Tuesday, June 28th, Palestinian villagers of Arab as Suweitat were prevented from feeding their livestock. Three villagers were detained when they attempted to carry bundles of hay close to the fence of the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Kadeem. The settlement is located a short distance south of the Jenin refugee camp, deep inside Palestinian Authority territory.

Kadeem settlement’s boundary fence is located less than 50 meters from the village and encloses large parts of the village’s land. The fence restricts access to the remaining grazing land. The three villagers detained were released after a short time, but the entire village has been warned not to go more than two meters from their houses in the direction of the settlement fence.
