On Saturday night, illegal Israeli colonizers invaded olive orchards in Yasuf village, east of the central West Bank city of Salfit, before cutting and uprooting several olive trees and attacking shepherds in Qarawat Bani Hassan town, west of Salfit.
Saleh Yassin, the head of Yasuf Village Council, said the colonizers cut and uprooted at least fifteen olive trees owned by a local farmer, identified as Ziad Jamil Abdul-Razeq.
In addition, the colonizers assaulted many Palestinian shepherds in the Nweitef Spring area, north of Qarawat Bani Hassan, before Israeli soldiers fired many gas bombs at the shepherds who tried to defend themselves.
The colonizers came from the illegal Havat Yair outpost, built on stolen Palestinian lands north of Qarawat Bani Hassan.
It is worth mentioning that the Nweitef Spring area is subject to constant violations, especially since the colonizers are trying to illegally annex it to expand Havat Ya’ir and control the water spring.
