I grow vegetables, olive trees, figs and grapes. I use donkeys to farm. For ten years I had three donkeys.
On the December 3, 2016 at around 1 pm, I went to my plot of land to pick seasonal vegetables: cabbage, cauliflower and onions. The plot is located about three miles west of the village of ‘Ein Qiniya (between the village and al-Janiyah) and about a kilometer south of the settlement Talmon A.
I tethered the donkeys on the west part of my plot, about one kilometer south of Talmon A. The distance between me and the donkeys was about 500 meters. My nephew saw settlers take the donkeys towards the settlement. My son and my nephew and I tried to catch them, but we couldn’t because we got to the area beyond which we are forbidden from entering without coordination. We saw the donkeys’ tracks on the ground along the path to Talmon A.
At around 5:20 pm., I called the Binyamin Police. They asked me to come to the police station to file a complaint.
