Settlers uproot 30 olive saplings near Salfit

SALFIT, Sunday, February 07, 2021 (WAFA) – Hardcore Israeli settlers today uprooted and stole about 30 olive saplings for a Palestinian farmer in the village of Bruqin, near the town of Salfit in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Witnesses told WAFA that a group of settlers sneaked their way into a ranch near the village, where they uprooted 30 olive saplings and stole farming equipment belonging to Mr. Yousef Sabra, a local Palestinian farmer.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities, as the Palestinian Authority has no jurisdiction over Israeli settlers under signed agreements.

Over 700,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
