Volunteers come to aid of labour-starved farmers in Israel

Baqa al-Gharbiya (AFP) – With the war in Gaza, the Palestinian labourers working the greenhouses of Marwane Abou Yassine, a farmer in the predominantly Arab city of Baqa al-Gharbiya, are no longer allowed to leave the West Bank, so volunteers come to help him with his harvest. “It helps in a way, but it’s not what we need. But what can we do?” says fellow farmer Ibrahem Mawasi. N°347U72V
