This week, again, AATW activists have joined the farmers of Saffa, in attempt to harvest vine leaves. This morning, a group of settlers, accompanied by soldiers, came down at the valley as we arrived there. The settlers started throwing stones at the group and rocks on the trees and threatened to burn the fields the following night. The soldiers politely asked the settlers not to attack, a call impolitely ignored. Soon enough, more soldiers have arrived to the group of farmers and activists – presenting it with another illegal "closed military zone" warrant. No explanations helped, and the group was forced out of the fields and back to the village. On our way back, the soldiers, commanded by a high ranking military officer, the entire region commanding officer, decided to hold one of the Palestinian farmers. Many of the activists tried to prevent his arrest – most of them were violently forced away. As only six of the activists remained near around the farmer, ordered the commander to push away the rest of the group – including all photographers. Then, the soldiers violently grasped the farmer and questioned him for throwing a stone. They eventually let him go, but arrested three of the remaining activists accusing them with "police assault". Again, as almost always, none of the attacking settlers were held or questioned by the soldiers.
