On Monday, illegal Israeli colonizers cut at least 450 Palestinian trees in orchards near Turmus Ayya and al-Mughayyir, northeast of Ramallah, in the central West bank.
Mohammad Alwan, the coordinator of the nonprofit “Palestinian Farmers Charity Association,” said the colonizers came from the illegal Adi Ad colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands in Turmus Atta and the al-Mughayyir, and invaded orchards and farmlands in the as-Sahel area.
Alwan added that the colonizers cut 200 olive trees and saplings owned by Talal Jabara from Turmus Ayya, and 250 plum, peach, and almond trees in addition to grapevines owned by Mohammad Sweiki.
The colonizers invaded the land after cutting fences surrounding them and destroying several water tanks.
A few days earlier, the colonizers burnt a Palestinian car in Turmus Ayya, and attacked an elderly woman and her family in front of Israeli soldiers who failed to intervene.
