A group of extremist illegal Israeli colonists burnt, on Sunday evening, approximately 300 Palestinian olive trees in northern West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities, said the colonizers burnt 300 olive trees, owned by Palestinians from Tal village, west of Nablus.

He added that the Israeli assailants, from Havat Gilad illegal colony, launched an incendiary balloon into the Palestinian orchard, and burnt it.

Israel’s colonies in occupied Palestine, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
