The olive press at Jit

Some background information:

"Jit is a village of approximately 2,100 Palestinians, most of whom depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. The olive harvest normally begins in October and ends in mid-November. Jit farmers estimate that they would need at least 2 weeks to harvest their olive crop. "On May 17, 2004, Israeli settlers reportedly set fire to an olive grove on the outskirts of Jit, destroying approximately 15 acres of Palestinian olive trees. A similar fire broke out on May 8, 2004 about 1 kilometer from the Jit fire in the Palestinian village of Kafr Kaddum (on land seized by Israel for the illegal Israeli settlement of Kedumim). On October 11, 2004, a Palestinian picking his olives was wounded by settler gunfire."

Case Study: Jit Village - Qalqilya The village is surrounded on four sides, by settlements and military installations. The owners of the land are forbidden from reaching them to pick olives or plow the land.

Palestine News Network 9.4.2006 ... The fence is extending south on the west side and will close Jit and Sarra villages southwest of Nablus. The area will become a closed military zone, with all movement prohibited, including traffic.
