Israeli soldiers fired, Friday, dozens of concussion grenades into Palestinian orchards, west of Jenin, in northern West Bank, resulting in burning at least 120 olive trees.

The head of Thaher al-‘Abed Village Council, said the soldiers are stationed at the military gate of the illegal Annexation Wall, which was built on Palestinian lands owned by the villagers.

He added that the concussion grenades caused a fire that consumed more than 120 olive trees, and that Palestinian firefighters, from Ya’bad nearby town, rushed to the area to extinguish the fire and to prevent it from spreading to surrounding farmlands and homes.

There is no apparent reason for the soldiers to start firing the grenades, especially since there were no protests in the area.

In related news, several illegal Israeli colonists burnt large areas of Palestinian agricultural lands, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
