Israeli settler attacks against Palestinians, not only because of the
increasing number of aggressions but also because of the evolution of
the violence itself.
In September and October 2009, only a few aggressions against
Palestinian farmers – related to harvest, land and farming equipment –
were reported. Yet approximately 22 incidents of this kind were
reported this year for the same period. Even if this time of year is
particularly violent in the West Bank due to the olive harvesting
season, other notable changes can be observed this year.
