The Palestinian Agricultural Relief reported that, last year, the settlers uprooted more than 70 Roman Olive trees that belong to the resident.

The Agricultural Relief added that this year witnessed a sharp escalation in the number of Israeli settler attacks against Palestinian villagers and their lands.
