BETHLEHEM, Saturday, July 31, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers destroyed 140 olive saplings in al-Khader town, south of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, today said local activist Ahmad Salah.

He told WAFA that settlers from the two illegal settlements of Daniel and Elazar sprayed the saplings with pesticides destroying them as a result.

The settlers, he said, took over Palestinian-owned land in the town and planted it with olive trees and other fruits, and they also opened a 100-meter-long, 2-meter-wide road for their use that went through Palestinian-owned land.
