The Israeli army on Sunday confiscated agricultural equipment in the village of Birin, near Hebron (Al-Khalil).

According to WAFA, the machinery belonged to Palestinian citizen, Ribhi Rabah Rajabi.

Israeli soldiers also assaulted local farmers and destroyed several olive trees in the area; they installed military checkpoints on the entrances to the village and searched vehicles owned by Palestinians.

The soldiers arrested two Palestinians in the village, including one former prisoner after storming and vandalizing their houses.

The destruction of Palestinian olive trees by Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers has become routine in recent years.

For the Apartheid Wall to be built, tens of thousands of olive trees, some of which were 600-years-old, were uprooted by Israeli bulldozers.
