Sept. 14, 2008 7:29 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 14, 2008 7:29 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli settlers near Nablus set fire to a grove of olive trees in the lands of Awarta village.

The Palestinian villagers had made an agreement with the Israeli army that they would be able to harvest their olives from lands near abutting the borders of Itamar settlement.

According to Israeli media, soldiers would not let villagers pass into the grove to put out the flames. Estimates say 12-17 acres of olive trees were destroyed, along with the harvest of at least a dozen families.
