Mohammad Awad, coordinator of the Popular Committee Against Settlements in Beit Ummar, told the Quds Press news agency that settlers of Beit Ayin illegal Israeli settlement, north of Beit Ummar, invaded a Palestinian orchard and cut the trees.

He said that the trees belong to resident Hammad Jaber Sleiby, and added that, five years ago, a number of settlers attacked Sleiby’s land and cut dozens of olive trees, almond trees, grapevines, and other types of trees.

He filed various complaints to the Israeli police, and even documented the attacks but the police failed to act against the invading settlers.

In related news, a number of settlers attacked Palestinian cars near the Za’tara junction, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and threw stones at them causing excessive damage to several vehicles.
