On Friday, Israeli colonizers, illegally squatting on Palestinian lands, uprooted dozens of olive saplings in Wad al-Hajjar area, west of Kisan village, east of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.
Ahmad Ghazal, the head of Kisam Village Council, stated that the Israeli assailants came from the illegal Abie Hanahal colony, which was installed on stolen Palestinian lands.
Ghazal added that the colonizers uprooted at least 50 olive saplings in an orchard, owned by a local farmer, identified as Ayyoub Yousef Obeyyat.
It is worth mentioning that Kisan and its lands are subject to frequent Israeli violations and escalation by the army and the colonialist settlers.
The violations include cutting and uprooting trees, destroying and flooding farmlands, attacking the local farmers and shepherds, and the constant attempts to illegally annex their lands.
In related news, the Israeli soldier injured four Palestinians and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation, in Kufur Qaddoum and Azzoun towns, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, during the weekly processions.
In occupied Jerusalem, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian physician, identified as Dr. Hazem al-Jolani, 50, near Bab al-Asbat, one of the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
