Israeli bulldozers uprooted Wednesday scores of olive trees to pave a colonial road near the Jewish colony of Kiryat Arba in the West Bank City of east Hebron.

Local sources of Wadi al-Haseen neighbourhood said that Israeli bulldozers, supported by Israeli soldiers, began razing citizens' lands today to pave the way for the construction of a 'Jewish-only' road that links Kiryat Arba and Ibrahimi holy mosque.

Witnesses told the Palestinian News Agency, WAFA, that Israeli bulldozers uprooted 20 Olive trees that were planted over ten years.
