Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) cut down Friday, October 14, 2022 several olive trees and stole olive crops belonging to Palestinians in areas to the south of the occupied West Bank City of Nablus.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, stated that settlers chopped down olive trees in the village of Qusra and Qaryiot and stole olive crops from the village of Awarta.
Extremist Israeli settlers’ violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank including property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, in addition to uprooting of crops and olive trees.
Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Israeli settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of International Law.
All settlements across the West Bank are built illegally in regards with the International Law, particularly article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which establishes that the occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.
