Jewish settlers uprooted on Monday around 450 trees belonging to two Palestinian residents in the towns of Turmusaya and Mughayir to the northeast of Ramallah, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Mohammed Alwan, the coordinator of the farmers’ charitable association, said that a number of settlers from the Israeli settlement of Adi Ad raided the area and uprooted 200 olive trees and saplings, in addition to 250 almond, plum, peach, and grape trees.

Alwan added that Jewish settlers, backed by the Israeli army, set fire to a vehicle in Turmusaya and assaulted an elderly woman and her sons a few days ago.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

  1. The illegal settler scourage that desecrates Palestine is the KKK in every respect. There is no place for this unbridled evil anywhere, especially in Palestine. Palestine must come up with a clever way to counter these hoodlums since the hoodlum Israeli government is an evil that will be removed at some point. Americans are with the Palestinians!
