A Palestinian farmer harvests grapes in a vineyard in the West bank village of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron
A Palestinian farmer harvests grapes in a vineyard in the West bank village of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron September 9, 2012. Once the mainstay of the local economy, Palestinian agriculture in the rocky West Bank is in decline, with farmers struggling to protect both their livelihoods and their lands. Deprived of water and cut off from key markets, farmers across the occupied territory can only look on with a mix of anger and envy as Israeli settlers copiously irrigate their own plantations and export at will.
