Illegal Israeli settlers uprooted, on Sunday, dozens of olive trees, in addition to causing damage to a barn and an agricultural structure, in Tuqu’ town, south of Bethlehem, in the southern occupied West Bank, according to a local official.

Tayseer Abu Mufreh, the director of the Tuqu’ municipality, said that a number of Israeli colonizers invaded the town, and uprooted at least 40 olive saplings, belonging to Palestinian citizens, Samir Mahmoud Jibril and Samih al-Amor.

Abu Mufreh added that the settlers vandalized the door to a barn used for housing sheep, destroyed an agricultural structure, and erected a barbed wire fence.
