Settlers uproot 100 grape trees east of Hebron

Sept. 20, 2010 10:55 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 20, 2010 7:13 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Several Israeli settlers uprooted approximately 100 grape trees in the Al-Buera village in the southern West Bank district of Hebron on Monday, owners of the grape plantation said.

The plantation belongs to Abdul Rahman Sharif Sultan, said Syfian Sultan, who estimated damages caused to reach thousands of dollars. He said settlers vandalized six dunums worth of grape trees, some as old as 15 years.

Sultan accused settlers from the nearby Kiryat Arba settlement of the vandalism and said it was done to force Palestinians to leave their homes to expand the settlement.

Palestinian Authority Ministry of Agriculture director in Hebron and agronomist Bader Hawamda condemned the act of vandalism and said the ministry would provide all possible assistance to Sultan.
