Occupied WB, ALRAY - Israeli settlers chopped down on Monday about 60 olive tree saplings in the occupied West Bank village of Jalud, south of Nablus.
Local sources reported that a number of settlers from a nearby illegal outpost cut down scores of trees owned by a local resident named Ghassan Hajj Mohammed.
This the second time Israeli settlers uprooted olive trees over the past few days, the sources pointed out.
On Monday evening, Israeli settlers chopped down and stole at least 130 olive tree seedlings in Shuab a-Kharab area to the east of Qusra village in southern Nablus.
A few days ago, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) destroyed nearly 3,000 olive trees in Deir Ballut town, west of Salfit.
Meanwhile, the IOF forces confiscated a Palestinian bulldozer in Nasiriyah village to the east of Nablus. The seized vehicle belongs to a local resident named Khalid Hamdan, according to local sources.
Israeli settlers attack Palestinians on a daily basis across the occupied territories under the so-called “Price Tag” banner. Such attacks always go unpunished by the Israeli occupation authorities.
