Israeli settlers uproot 300 fruit bearing olive trees in the West Bank

Israeli settlers from the Itmar Settlement on Wednesday afternoon uprooted 300 fruit bearing olive trees in Awerta village in the north of the occupied West Bank.

A Palestinian official, Ghassan Daglas, has said that the Israeli authorities have affirmed the settler attack on the Palestinian farms and the cutting down of 300 trees.

Palestinian farmers and other residents have expressed their anger over the aggression against their lands, but could do nothing more than this.

It is worth mentioning that Israeli settlers recently set at least seven Palestinian vehicles on fire in Al-Zubaidat village in Jordan Valley.

Israeli settlers carry out such acts nearly once a week. They either uproot trees or set flour crops on fire.
