Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupation forces, uprooted on Wednesday dozens of Palestinian olive trees in the Palestinian land in Tarmus Ayya, north of occupied Ramallah.
According to Palestinian local sources, Israeli settlers uprooted about 120 olive trees owned by the Palestinian farmer Said Zaatar in Tarmus Ayya town.
The sources pointed out that Zaatar figured out the matter once he reached his land and he was surprised by the settlers’ vandalism in his land.
Since the start of the olive harvest season earlier in October, Israeli settlers have been escalating their attacks against the Palestinian lands in the occupied West Bank, stealing, uprooting, and burning olive trees.
According to Palestinian figures published several days ago, Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupation forces, have carried out about 268 violations against Palestinian olive pickers and their lands.
