NABLUS, February 17, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Tuesday uprooted dozens of Palestinian-owned olive trees in the northern West Bank town of Tayasir, east of Tubas, according to a local official.

Head of al-Malih village council Aref Daraghmeh told WAFA that a military force along with staff from the civil administration and “the protection of nature society”, stormed the area of al-Sabih in the town and uprooted olive trees.

Forces also removed the barber wire surroundings the land, which belongs to local resident Anan Daraghmeh.

Israeli forces target Palestinians and their property or provide protection to settlers conducting attacks on Palestinian residents’ land; including the burning and uprooting of trees.

According to a United Nations’ OCHA report, ‘Israeli settlers damaged over 5,500 Palestinian-owned olive trees and saplings in the period between December 30 2014, and January 12, 2015.”
