Omar uses his donkey to transport tarps and bags to the picking site.
For the past three days MPT has accompanied Omar, a Palestinian farmer to his olive trees. A month ago he had 350 trees burned by the settlers. Today he heard that the Israel army would come to protect him from the settlers but the army didn’t come. Omar used his cell phone but was unable to learn why the army didn’t come. He chose to pick olives in a safer valley area further from the Israeli settlement of Har Bach.
In spite of the many hardships, Omar continues to experience, both he and his son could be heard singing Arabic songs while picking olives.
