Illegal Israeli settlers, on Saturday, cut 40 olive trees belonging to Palestinians in the village of al-Mughayyir, near the city of Ramallah, local sources said.

Sources told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that the cut trees were the property of two Palestinian villagers from al-Mughayyir, in the central occupied West Bank.

Israeli soldiers reportedly prevented the two villagers from entering their farm land to inspect the damage to their crops.

In related news, on Thursday, illegal settlers in the city of Bethlehem, reportedly uprooted hundreds of newly-planted grapevines, south of the city.
