Israeli settlers on Sunday morning uprooted and stole 150 olive trees from Palestinian land in Nablus’s southern town of al-Sawiya.
Anti-settlement activist in the northern West Bank, Gahssan Dughlas, said al-Sawiya farmers were shocked as they caught sight of the uprooted olive trees, planted over a decade ago in their land.
The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) have been preventing the owners of the targeted land lots, located near the border fence of Rahalim illegal outpost, from reaching their lands. Only those who obtain a permit from the IOA are allowed access into their tracts.
Dughlas added that the uprooted trees were planted on land lots owned by Palestinian citizens, namely Haythem Kafana and Suheil Suleiman, among others.
