Colonist Israeli settlers set on fire to a Palestinian-owned farm land, on Saturday, in Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Palestinian chief of the profile for illegal Israeli settlements in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, told media outlets that several armed Israeli colonists, from the illegal Israeli settlement of Giv’at Ronaie, broke into the nearby Palestinian-owned farm land, east of Burin village.
Daghlas said that right after they invaded the farm land, they set fire to hundreds of fruitful olive trees among other crops.
He added that after the attack, the colonists fled the area, back to their illegal settlement.
Noteworthy, Israeli colonial settlers repeatedly attack Palestinian-owned farm lands throughout the West Bank. There are almost 200 illegal Israeli settlements, erected on Palestinian lands, across the West Bank.
These settlers’ attacks on Palestinians and their property, are widely perceived by Palestinians as vicious attempts to disrupt the already difficult lives of Palestinians, intending to force them to concede their farmlands, which are adjacent to the colonial Israeli settlements.
