A group of illegal fanatic Israeli colonists uprooted, Thursday, 250 Palestinian olive saplings in Kisan village, east of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Ahmad Ghazal, the head of Kisan Village Council, said the colonist invaded an orchard in the western part of the village, and uprooted around 250 saplings.

He added that the lands are owned by Ayyoub Yousef Obeyyat, and were planted nearly two weeks ago.

It is worth mentioning that the village has been subject to frequent Israeli violations, including recent attacks targeting homes, in addition to assaulting shepherds and unleashing their dogs on them and their livestock.
