SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Settlers on Saturday cut down Palestinian-owned olive trees in Salfit in the northern West Bank, witnesses said.

A group of settlers destroyed eight olive trees and damaged two lemon trees belonging to farmer Abdel Razzaq Khaled Mansour in the Wadi Qana area of Deir Istaya, locals told Ma'an.

Local mayor Nathmi Salman said settlers constantly attacked farmers' land and damaged their property.

He appealed to human rights organizations to intervene and "stop this chaos."
