Israeli settlers chop down dozens of olive trees in West Bank town

 

JENIN, August 18, 2018 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers chopped down dozens of olive trees in Arrabeh, a town south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, local sources said on Saturday.

They told WAFA that settlers from the illegal settlement of Dotan chopped the trees, many of them over 15 years old, planted in a land located near the settlement.

Settlers regularly target olive trees in that area, particularly as the olive harvest season, a main source of income to hundreds of Palestinian families, approaches.
