Israeli settlers set fire to Palestinians' olive trees near Nablus

Oct. 16, 2008 11:31 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 16, 2008 11:31 A.M.)
Qalqilia - Ma'an - Israelis from the West Bank settlement Qedumim set fire to olive trees owned by a Palestinian farmer, Fathi Hamed Amer, in the village of Kafr Qaddum, which is adjacent to the settlement on Thursday morning.

Witnesses reported that as of late morning the olive groves were still burning. The area lies west of the city of Nablus.

The burning of the olive trees is the latest in a series of violent settler attacks, particularly against Palestinian famers, who recently began the annual olive harvest.

On 10 an 11 October, Israelis from settlements in the Nablus area assaulted farmers working on their lands in villages near Nablus. In the first attack, six Palestinians, including a 70-year-old man, were injured. In the second, two Palestinians were hospitalized for head injuries.
