Pray for the Palestinian landowners and farmers. It is olive harvest season in Palestine, a significant season for the Palestinian farmers and landowners, but this year, they face many challenges.
In Hebron H2 and South Hebron Hills, the Israeli government selects specific days and hours when they allow owners to access their lands. This year, due to the lack of coordination between the Palestinian and Israeli governments, many farmers will not have access to their land to report any violations.
Also, because of Covid-19 restrictions, local volunteers may be unable to gather with the families to harvest their olives on the selected days. Settler harassment has increased this year, and landowners are worried about the violence that might occur with the lack of protective presence and observers.
Please pray for a safe and productive harvest season for the Palestinians.
