Settlers uproot 200 olive trees near Nablus 20Feb11 February 21, 2011

The Palestine Telegraph -  2- February 2011

Israeli settlers stormed and  cut down Sunday morning newly planted olive trees by Palestinian villagers in the south-east of Nablus in the West Bank.

Witnesses told that dozens of settlers came from Yash Adam settlement and started their uprooting operations, while villagers attempted to defend their agricultural lands.

Ghassan Douglas, PA settlement affairs officer in the northern West Bank, said “ the olive trees were planted one month ago  between Qusra and Duma towns.”

Israeli settlers uprooted at least 200 olive trees during their attack to Palestinian agricultural lands, while many residents in different parts of the West Bank depend on farming as a source of their income.
