Illegal Israeli settlers cut down, on Thursday, dozens of Palestinian-owned olive trees in Burin village, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, according to a local official.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli violations, and colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, told the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) that a local resident found 46 of his olive trees had been chopped by Israeli settlers.

Meanwhile, west of Salfit, in the northern West Bank, several colonists uprooted and confiscated 80 olive saplings, owned by local farmers, in addition to stealing a tractor and cell phones, according to local sources.

Sources told Quds Press that a group of Israeli settlers from the illegal ‘Ali Zahav’ colony, under the full protection of the occupation army, stormed the privately-owned agricultural lands and uprooted 80 seedlings before confiscating them.

The same colonists stole a tractor belonging to a local farmer identified as Saleh Al-Shannar, in addition to snatching a number of cell phones.
