A day before the Palestinian Land Day – 30 March, the JAI, together with other organizations, have co-organized and run an olive tree planting event on a threatened field in Al-Khader village, south-west of Bethlehem.

The JAI provided 150 olive trees, sponsored by internationals through the Olive Tree Campaign, where more than 100 local and international staff and volunteers from refugee camps, villages and town of Bethlehem and Hebron have joined the event to plant the trees, together with the farmers and land owners' families.

The trees' planting aimed at maintaining the Palestinian farmers' land that is under high threat of confiscation, where land and olive trees are the most attacked by the Israeli occupation measures and apartheid system' procedures.
