The olive harvest, a key moment of the year in the West Bank
The harvest season for olives starts in October in the West Bank. This is a key moment of the year for Palestinians. It provides an income to farmers. It is also part of the heritage and the palestinian tradition.
Since few weeks, the harvest season for olives has started in the West Bank. But every year, the farmers face difficulties. Indeed, farmers whose lands are located inside or close to Israeli settlements or military zones, cannot access these zones without prior coordination with the Israeli authorities.
