International Middle East Media Center: Palestinian farmers in the Salfit district appealed all to Palestinian and international bodies to stop the continued destruction of their crops, caused by the Israeli pigs in the district.

Farmers said, “We have encountered heavy losses in our wheat and barley crops, where the pigs destroyed them completely.”

 
They added, “We tried to get rid of the pigs with all available ways but we have failed”, pointing out that the only way is to shoot them; which is difficult due to the miltary’s monitoring towers and checkpoints in the area.

 

Furthermore, according to Al Ray, Palestinian researcher Khaled Maali explained that the settlers found launching wild pigs toward the Palestinian farmlands was the best effective way to fight the Palestinian farmers without significant cost.

 

Maali pointed out that the occupation prevents the Palestinians from shooting the pigs, whereas it permits settlers to kill the pigs when they reach their colonial settlements.

 

These Israeli settler assaults are in direct violation of international humanitarian law, and of Israel’s obligations under international law as an occupying power.
