PA representative Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers from Yitzhar raided Huwwara village, cutting down over 150 trees.

The olive trees belonged to Fatima Audah, Ghazi Dawood Salim, Nayif Khadir Audah. Some of the trees were located on lands belonging to a local mosque.

Settler groups are responsible for thousands of attacks against the Palestinians and their property in different parts of the occupied West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.

The attacks include attacking, burning and trying to burn mosques and churches, torching Palestinian crops and farmlands, uprooting hundreds of trees, including ancient olive trees, breaking tombstones and writing racist, anti-Islamic and anti-Christian graffiti, puncturing tires of Palestinian vehicles, burning cars and many other similar assaults.

Just Sunday, settlers chainsawed over 60 olive trees in Huwwara.

The number of Israeli settlers living in various settlements in the occupied West Bank, including in an around occupied East Jerusalem, is more than 500,000, while Israel is ongoing with its illegitimate settlement construction and expansion activities.

Settlements violate International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention, to which Israel is a signatory.
