Settlers uproot olive, almond saplings near Nablus

 

NABLUS, Sunday, January 06, 2019 (WAFA) – Illegal Jewish settlers on Sunday uprooted and stole newly planted almond and olive samplings near the small village of Yanoun, to the south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, local sources said.

 Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the area, told WAFA that settlers from the illegal outpost of “777”, accompanied by a bulldozer, uprooted a number of olive and almond saplings, which belong to Palestinian villagers from Yanoun.

About 400,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only settlements across the occupied West Bank in violation of international, and are rarely held accountable for attacks on Palestinians and their property.

Israeli authorities have served indictments in only 8.2 percent of cases of Israeli settlers committing anti-Palestinian crimes in the occupied West Bank in the past three years, according to Israeli NGO Yesh Din.
