Israeli barrier threatens unique Palestinian village :

locals Palestinians living in the West Bank’s Batir village say Israel’s plan to construct its security barrier across its lands threatens the ancient system of agriculture traditionally practiced by the farmers of the area. The route of the barrier is still to be finalized, but if it is built along the valley floor, parallel to the railway as villagers fear, it will cut off Batir village from much of its agricultural land, and villagers say it will destroy a way of life they have lived for millennia. For more than 2000 years, the village has farmed using a traditional irrigation system that villagers fear will be destroyed if the barrier is built. They say they will lose their income and lands forever. “It is a tragedy for all farmers and all the residents of Batir village. Most of the residents are farmers and depend on these green lands. They depend on farming the Batir eggplant which is famous in the Palestinian lands. Also we have other vegetables such as beans, cauliflower, and pepper," Farmer Maher al-Harbouq said.

Zionist settlers chainsaw Palestinians olive trees
Settlers armed with chainsaws cut down at least 120 olive trees belonging to Palestinian residents of a West Bank town, the International Middle East Media Center reported this morning. Witnesses said Zionist settlers from the illegal settlement of Aliyea destroyed the trees belonging to 12 farmers in the village of Qaryout, just south of Nablus. Settlers and soldiers routinely destroy Palestinian olive orchards, often using tractors to uproot this vital source of livelihood. Attacks on olive orchards are most common in the early fall as harvest season begins. Today marks the first day of harvest season for Palestinians.

Al-Tur residents resist raid on school
Israeli forces shocked residents in Al-Tur on Thursday when a raid on Shamile school was attempted. Students, staff and residents mobilized quickly to protect the school, with a call issued from the mosque’s speakers rallying the people of Al-Tur to hold back the armed forces. Israeli forces launched the raid claiming that school students had thrown stones at them from the street. Horse-mounted police and undercover units surrounded the school, locking its gates. A student’s mother told Silwanic that : “We ran to the school as soon as we heard the call from the loudspeaker. When we arrived, we saw them locking the main gate to the school, while on the other side a unit was attempting to break the gate.” A 19-year old university student was searched and arrested by police, who attempted to strip-searched him in public. Residents managed to stop the search by surrounding the police with cameras. Israeli police issued traffic fines to over 20 vehicles parked in the school car park, several of them belonging to teachers. The Parents Committee announced a strike across Municipality schools in response to the attempted raid. The raid is the most recent in a targeting of schools and their students, who are often searched, physically assaulted or arrested by Israeli forces on the way too and from class. Last week a guard at the girls school of Al-Tur was stopped by police and denied access to the school before being arrested. He was detained for one day then sentenced to a week of house arrest and ordered to pay a fine. Two students were also attacked and threatened with arrest by Israeli forces earlier in the day.

Unidentified Drone Shatters Israel’s Dome
Hezbollah has neither confirmed nor denied Tel Aviv’s accusations that the Resistance movement is behind the launch of a spy drone over Israeli territory, which flew for hours over Israeli military bases and facilities. This came just two days after Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense minister, asserted that Israel was the most powerful country in the region.These claims coming from Israel are not likely to ever be confirmed by the Lebanese side. This is the rule usually followed by Hezbollah, whether it was indeed behind the drone or not. All indications in Israel are that the unmanned reconnaissance plane started its flight from Lebanon, with the aim of gathering information on sensitive military sites in Israel. This came just two days after Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense minister, asserted that Israel was the most powerful country in the region. He said that Israel is prepared for any scenario that might emerge in the north, adding that there is nothing to fear.

IDF Failure Allows Hezbollah-Iranian Drone to Overfly Israeli Cities, Military Bases, Richard Silverstein
The IDF displayed yet another embarrassing failure in defending the homeland yesterday regarding the Iranian drone launched under the auspices of Hezbollah from Lebanon. Yediot’s Alex Fishman, one of the few forthright Israeli defense reporters notes (print only) that the aerial vehicle was allowed to fly over Israeli airspace for 20 minutes before it was downed. If you take into account IDF spokesperson Avital Leibovich’s claim that the army was tracking the drone for 20 minutes, that means it hadn’t a clue about the drone until it crossed into Israeli airspace. Imagine the most advanced army in the Middle East cannot track a slow-moving drone launched from Lebanon and flown for a long distance over the Mediterranean. Among the Israeli sites it overflew were population centers and military bases. It was only 18 miles (he calls it “spitting distance”) from Dimona when it was felled. Several years ago, a Hezbollah balloon flew directly over Dimona before it too was shot down. Note that this is supposed to be restricted airspace.
