A Palestinian youth holds a national flag next to a water tank in the former Israeli settlement of Homesh settlement near the West Bank city of Jenin, Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013. After a long court battle, Palestinian farmers have reclaimed land they lost to an Israeli settlement in the 1970s. Israel dismantled Homesh and three other West Bank settlements in 2005, in connection with a wider withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, but refused to let the original Palestinian landowners return to the Homesh area. On Thursday, farmers from the village of Burka returned to their nearby land for the first time.
