Saturday, December 19 2009 Escorting peasants

Ta’ayush activists were escorting peasants from Samu’a to their lands near the illegal outpost of Assah’el. Similar to previous occasions, after an hour’s ploughing’ the settlers sent army forces and Boarder Patrol to expel the Palestinians, using a Military closed zone decree, and evacuated all the Palestinians and Ta’ayush activists from the fields. The tractor driver was detained for a few hours because he did not leave fast enough, the soldiers claimed.
