Settlers chop off olive saplings near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, Friday, January 20, 2023 (WAFA) – Extremist Israeli settlers today uprooted and chopped off more than 25 olive saplings belonging to a Palestinian farmer in the village of Al-Khader, to the south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Ahmad Salah, a local Palestinian activist, told WAFA that a group of Israeli settlers uprooted and vandalized the olive saplings after breaking into a ranch owned by Imad Salah, a Palestinian farmer from the village.

Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.

There are over 650,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law and consensus.
