farmers without fields

Today I visited Qaffin village. People explained us how the wall separate the village from their fields.
2 gates have been installed to allow farmers to pass. what a kind attention... The reality is that one of the gate has been closed for the last 5 years. The other one obliges farmers to a 2 hours walk, (if ever they have permit). Israelian army opens the gate 2 or 3 times a week for a few hours. What a kind attention...

the never-ending fence, Qaffin

Yesterday a fire burnt hundreds of their olive trees. Who put the fire? we will never know. But we know that neither the farmers nor palestinians firemens were able to reach the land and estinguish the fire. Farmers could only wait and look from the other side their main source of income burning.
Last week, Fatia went to her crop on the "very palestinian" side of the fence with her 3 young kids. She had to run away, the soldiers pointing at her with their guns.

We went to one of the gate. Soldiers seeing our camaras inmediatly came and tried to prevent us to take pictures. Would they have something to be ashamed of?

at least this time they did not throw tear gas, just lies
