Israeli settlers, on Tuesday, uprooted at least half a dozen fruitful olive trees in al-Hamra area, south of Hebron, in the occupied West Bank, said a local activist.

The popular committee coordinator in Yatta, Rateb al-Jabour, told WAFA that settlers from the Israeli settlements of Ma’on and Havat Ma’on, built illegally on Yatta town land, in Hebron, uprooted around six fruitful olive tress belonging to two local residents who were identified as Salameh and Ibrahim Rabee.

Such actions are routinely carried out by Israeli extremists, in the occupied West Bank, with no intervention from law enforcement officials.
