Updated: On Saturday, paramilitary illegal Israeli colonizers attacked several Palestinians on their olive orchards and cut dozens of olive trees in the Masafer Yatta area, south of Hebron, in the West Bank’s southern part.

Mohammad Rib’ey, the head of the Tiwana Village Council, said the colonizers attacked several Palestinians from the Rib’ey family and prevented them from entering their orchards and lands in the Al-Hamra area in Masafer Yatta.

He added that the colonizers cut dozens of olive trees owned by Issa Rib’ey and Mohammad Daoud.

The attack came just a week after the colonizers cut many olive trees owned by Issa Rib’ey and Mohammad Daoud in the same area.

Israeli settlers cut down dozens of Palestinian olive trees owned by the elderly Palestinian man Issa Al-Rubaie in Masafer Yatta, south of occupied Hebron.

The colonizers have been conducting numerous attacks against the Palestinians and their lands in the area to force them out and build new illegal colonies.
