Sources: Extremist Israeli settlers chop hundreds of trees in West Bank

Nablus – Gaza Post – Israeli settlers on Saturday cut down around 600 olive and almond trees in the town of Deir Sharaf, west of the northern West Bank city of Nablus according to a local authority.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank said that when residents of Deir Sharaf went to their lands west of the village, near the illegal settlement of Shavi Shomron, which they rehabilitated five years ago, they discovered that the settlers had chopped down their trees.

He claimed the land, which he believed to be about 70 dunums in size, belonged to a local family.

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli settler violence against Palestinian residents and their property is rampant and nearly daily, with a little attempt by the Israeli government to rein in the colonial settlers.
