Settlers plowed land belonging to Palestinian farmers in Azmut, east of Nablus, and planted young olive, vine and prunus trees, said Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank.
He said the settlers used bulldozers to dig dirt roads, allowing tractors to access the fields.
Daghlas told Ma’an the attempt to take over the fields was unprecedented in the northern West Bank district.
“This assault is the most dangerous of its kind. Settlers took a step forward. First they used to damage fields, and now they want to occupy them,” he said.
