Extremist settlers today vandalised and defaced Palestinian cars and property in the occupied West Bank city of Al-Bireh, the Palestinian Information Centre reported.

According to local sources, the settlers punctured the tyres of three vehicles and spray-painted racist slurs on them and on nearby walls in the industrial zone of the city.

Incidents of vandalism and violence by extremist Jewish settlers against Palestinians and their property are a daily occurrence in the West Bank.

Israeli occupation forces this afternoon uprooted dozens of olive trees in Battir town, west of Bethlehem.

Municipal official Zaki Al-Batma said Israeli bulldozers, escorted by occupation forces, uprooted dozens of trees in an olive grove belonging to a local resident, claiming the trees had been planted on state land.
