SALFIT, Sunday, March 06, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today cut down and sole dozens of olive trees and vandalized an agricultural room and its contents in the town of Kafr Ad-Dik, west of Salfit, according to local farmers.
Settlers from the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Alei Zahav cut down and stole around 190 olive trees, aged 2 to 10 years old, and destroyed an agricultural room belonging to local farmers. They further stole around 40 olive saplings.
The said area has been recently targeted by repeated settlers’ attacks with the aim of forcing residents to leave the area for the benefit of settlement expansion.
Mayor of Salfit, Abdallah Kmail stressed that the racist expansion of settlements on large swathes of Salfit land has been increasing every day in a systematic manner and under the protection of the occupation forces, calling on Palestinians to remain steadfast on their land.
