Israeli occupation forces today uprooted 350 olive trees and demolished three residential structures in the village of Nweimeh, near the occupied West Bank city of Jericho, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Najat Irmeileh, head of Nweimeh municipality, told WAFA that an Israeli army bulldozer uprooted about 350 olive trees planted two years ago by a local resident, and demolished three structures owned by another resident and his brothers. They also seized their equipment while displacing their residents.

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.

  1. The Zionist barbarians are out doing the Nazis by far. It is hard to understand the mentality of this criminals. They cry about the holocausts but fail to mention the the Palestinian holocausts. It is time to treat the Zionist and their supporters in the same manner. Racist bunch of barbarians.

  2. This criminals are without any conscience. Bombing hospitals murder medics, destroy homes, torcher children murder without any any recourse, apartheid, collective punishments and more. Unfortunately both American and Canadian governments {puppets} reward this kind of war crimes with a secretive tax free charity status on the back of the taxpayers. Billions are sent out to support the barbarian military and war criminal Zionist country including the illegal; settlements so the settlers may murder at will. I feel the pain of the Palestinians living under the Jewish communism and fighting against it. What a mentality and racist attitude. The Nazis were much more civilized.
