Israeli forces, on Thursday morning, cut down dozens of olive trees in the village of Huwwara, to the south of Nablus.

Local sources reported, according to Al Ray, that the soldiers destroyed olive trees planted on both sides of the main street, under the pretext of “use as a cover” for Palestinians who throw stones at settlers’ vehicles passing on the street.

Olive trees, regularly uprooted or cut down by Israeli soldiers and illegal settlers, are greatly valued by Palestinians and considered as a source of livelihood for many of them.
