On Friday, illegal Israeli colonizers invaded three Palestinian orchards in Kafr Ed-Deek town, west of Salfit, in the central West Bank, and cut at least fifty olive saplings.

Tawfiq Jabara said the colonizers invaded his orchard and cut 35 olive saplings he had planted 4-5 years earlier.

He added that the colonizers also cut eleven saplings from an orchard owned by  Jamil Jom’a and ten saplings from an orchard owned by Taiseer Yacoub.

Jabara stated that, over the last three years, the colonizers cut and uprooted more than 80 olive saplings in his orchard.

The orchards are in the Banat Bar area in the western part of Kafr Ed-Deek, subject to frequent Israeli violations.
