A number of armed Jewish settlers uprooted on Monday morning more than 200 olive trees near the village of Qasra, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus. Ghassan Douglas, in charge of settlements file in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, stated that settlers of Shavut Rachel illegal settlement located near Qasra and Jaloud attacked Palestinian orchards and uprooted around 250 trees.

Douglas added that the tree belong to resident Ali Abdul-Hamid Hasan. He stated that the trees were planted several years ago but the settlers uprooted them apparently to install an illegal outpost.

He demanded the International Community to intervene and practice pressure on the Israeli government to stop the ongoing attacks carried out by the settlers against the Palestinians and their lands.
