Palestinians in West Bank village ordered by Israeli army to remove trees planted months ago

 

NABLUS, Monday, March 30, 2020 (WAFA) – The Israeli army informed Palestinians in the north of the West Bank to remove trees they planted several months ago in an area north of the city of Nablus, today said Ghassan Daghlas, a local official.

He said that trees were planted in the village of Burqa in an area considered a Palestinian tourism site with ancient and Ottoman relics and which Israeli settlers have been trying to take over.

Israel does not want the Palestinians to introduce any changes to the site, including planting it with trees, even though the area is a Palestinian archeological site.
