Israeli settlers uproot olive trees in occupied West Bank

A group of Israeli settlers have uprooted more than 100 olive trees in the occupied West Bank, Press TV reports.

The settlers destroyed the trees belonging to Palestinian farmers in the village of Ras Karkar, northwest of the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday.

The olive harvest is the main annual source of income for the villagers and they say the frequent settler assaults on their property have affected the livelihood of farmers.

“The olives and oil we make from these trees are our only source of income. We live off this land. The settlers contaminate our water. They prohibit us from reaching the springs, and they cut down our trees,” Ali Azmi Samhan, a Palestinian farmer, told Press TV.

Villagers say the settlers returned to Ras Karkar on Monday and attacked Palestinian farmers who were attempting to replace the destroyed trees.

On January 1, Tadamun Foundation for Human Rights, an NGO, said in an annual report that an estimated 8,000 trees, some of them hundreds of years old, had been damaged and destroyed altogether by the Israelis.

“Settlers’ attacks include uprooting, burning and cutting down olive trees… Olive groves were also flooded by wastewater from the settlements,” said the rights group.

“We have been unable to count the hundreds of trees damaged in groves close to settlements due to Israeli security measures.”
