Settlers uproot hundreds of olive trees in south of West Bank


HEBRON, Tuesday, January 22, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers chopped on Tuesday hundreds of olive trees in the town of Beit Ummar in the south of the occupied West Bank, according to a local activist.

Yousef Abu Maria, active in the anti-settlements movement in the town, told WAFA that settlers from the illegal settlement of Beit Ein, built on Beit Ummar land, chopped hundreds of trees from plot of land that belongs to Ibrahim Talji, a local farmer, in the north of the town.

He said this was not the first time Beit Ein settlers vandalize Talji and other farmers’ land in that section of the town and every time the farmers replant the land, the settlers come back to uproot them.
