Israeli colonists illegally squatting on Palestinian lands cut, Wednesday, more than 30 olive trees in Jaloud village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the colonists invaded an orchard, owned by Rajeh Mohammad Hammoud, and uprooted more than 30 olive trees.
Daghlas added that, a month ago, the colonists invaded the same area and uprooted more than 50 olive trees.
The attacks are part of the numerous violations by the colonists targeting the residents, their homes and lands, in several parts of the occupied West Bank.
All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Humanitarian Law.
