Illegal Israeli colonialist settlers uprooted, on Wednesday, Palestinian-owned grape saplings and tore down retaining walls near Salfit in the central occupied West Bank, and others razed lands near Bethlehem in the southern West Bank, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.

In the town of Kafr ad-Dik, located west of Salfit, Israeli settlers uprooted and stole grape saplings from lands belonging to Saadat Said, who stated that the colonists also levelled stone walls and destroyed a 150-meter-long barbed wire fence which he built around his property.

West of Bethlehem, in Battir town, another group of settlers levelled a portion of Palestinian-owned lands after they took over the lands on Tuesday, after they placed tents and mobile homes on it, with the intention of initiating an illegal outpost, according to local activist, Ghassan Oweineh.
