On Friday evening, illegal Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian farmers and burnt lands in the as-Sahel (Meadow) area between the villages of al-Mughayyir and Turums Ayya, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Marzouq Abu Na’im, a member of the al-Mughayyir Village Council, said the colonizers burnt farmlands in the as-Sahel area before the Palestinians rushed to extinguish the fire, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said.

Abu Na’im added that the colonizers then assaulted the Palestinians while extinguishing the fire, leading to a scuffle.

The colonizers also cut five Palestinian olive trees and smashed the windshield of one car, in addition to placing rocks on roads leading to Palestinian farmlands and orchards.
