Dozens of extremist Israeli settlers of the Beit Ayin illegal colony, north of Beit Umamar, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, attacked on Tuesday Palestinian orchards and farmlands and uprooted dozens of Olive trees, Plum trees, and grapevines in Wad Abu Al Reesh area.Mohammad Awad, spokesperson of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, reported that the settlers uprooted and cut 50 trees that belong to resident Hammad Abdu-Hamid Al Sleiby, and his brothers.

Awad added that the attacked farmlands are 40 Dunams (9.88 Acres), and that the settlers attacked the lands in question at least four times in recent years.

“Each time the settlers uprooted the lands, Hammad and his brothers, replanted them”, Awad stated, “despite repeated and ongoing assaults, the family remains steadfast in its land”.
