On Monday, Israeli soldiers and illegal colonizers cut dozens of Palestinian olive trees and evergreens in two areas near Salfit, in the central West Bank.
In Qarawat Bani Hassan village, west of Salfit, Israeli colonizers invaded the Um Al-Mawaker area, in the northeastern area of the village, and cut thirty olive saplings.
Local farmer Ammar Mer’ey said the colonizers cut his olive saplings on his orchard near the main street between Hares and Deir Istiya, adding that the saplings were planted in two Dunams.
Last Saturday, the colonizers invaded a Palestinian orchard in Bruqin town, west of Salfit, and cut more than fifty olive saplings.
Furthermore, illegal Israeli colonizers cut dozens of Palestinian evergreens on the sides of a street between Hares and Deir Istiya towns northwest of Salfit.
Omar Samara, the head of Hares Village Council, told the WAFA Palestinian News Agency that the soldiers cut the trees on two Dunams of Palestinian lands.
