Illegal Israeli colonists chopped, early Tuesday morning, dozens of Palestinian-owned olive trees in the northern occupied West Bank, northwest of Nablus, the Palestinian News and Information Agency (WAFA) reported.

Local monitor of Israel’s illegal settlement projects, Ghassan Daghlas, stated that Palestinian farmers from the villages of Deir Sharaf, Sebastia and An-Naqura found that dozens of their olive trees had been destroyed.

The orchards, fenced in by the army, had been chopped down by illegal colonists from the nearby Shavi Shomron settlement, built on expropriated Palestinian lands.

Furthermore, on Tuesday, Israeli colonizers attacked many Palestinians as they were harvesting their olives, west of Nahhalin town, west of Bethlehem in central occupied West Bank.
