Israeli forces uproot hundreds of trees near Tubas

TUBAS, Wednesday, January 27, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today uprooted hundreds of trees in the area of Einun, east of the occupied West Bank city of Tubas, local sources said.

Muataz Bsharat, an official in charge of monitoring Israeli colonial activities in the Jordan Valley, told WAFA that Israeli forces cordoned the area off, before military bulldozers uprooted hundreds of trees planted several years ago under purportedly for being planted in military zones.

The “Civil Administration” is the name Israel gives to the body administering its military occupation of the West Bank.

Soldiers in the oxymoronically named Civil Administration determine where Palestinians may live, where and when they may travel (including to other parts of the occupied territories like Gaza and East Jerusalem), whether they can build or expand homes on their own land, whether they own that land at all, whether an Israeli settler can takeover that land among others.
