Olive and citrus trees uprooted in a town near Jerusalem to widen a road used by settlers

JERUSALEM, Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (WAFA) The Israeli occupation forces today uprooted around 90 trees in the town of Hizma, northeast of occupied Jerusalem, to widen a road used by Israeli settlers, reported WAFA correspondent.

He said that the occupation forces, accompanied by a bulldozer, stormed an area near Hizma and Anata road and uprooted 70 olive trees and 20 citrus trees from a farm owned by a local resident, although their owners have papers proving ownership of the land.

The occupation authorities had recently announced the seizure of hundreds of dunums of land in that area to widen the Hizma-Anata road as a service to the settlers who use that road.
