20,606 Trees Planted in a Mission of Resistance - Where and How?

APN | Palestine

November and December 2023


Each of the 20,606 trees symbolizes a green resistance project that we cultivated in 2023, primarily on land situated in Area C. These lands are located in governorates that have been subjected to intense settlement aggression, including Hebron, Qalqilya, Nablus, Salfit, and Tulkarm.

Through nine agricultural projects, we journey through the villages of Tarqumiyah, Qabalan, Kafr ad-Dik, Aqraba, Farkha, Joresh, Baqa ash-Sharqiyya, Azun Atme, and Jayyous. Our aim is to highlight the stories of farmers eagerly anticipating the forthcoming seasons of harvest.

More than 2,000 individuals, constituting 303 Palestinian families, reap the benefits of these trees, which cover 2,372 dunums, safeguarding them from confiscation.
