NABLUS, Friday, December 2, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Thursday night stole dozens of honey bee hives and olive harvesting equipment from Deir Sharaf village, west of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local activist.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that settlers sneaked their way into a plot of land belonging to Aziz Antari, a villager, and stole some 30 honey bee hives and olive picking equipment.
Settlers violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
