Witnesses: Settlers uproot over 500 trees in Salfit

Sept. 19, 2011 4:18 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 19, 2011 10:57 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers uprooted over 500 olive and fig trees in Deir Istiya village in Salfit on Monday morning, witnesses said.

Onlookers said residents of the Revava settlement chopped down trees using a chainsaw in Qarawat Bani Hassan village near Deir Istiya.

The village mayor said the field belonged to Daoud Yousef Harb, a resident of Deir Isitya.

Farmer Harb Rayan, who worked on the land, told Ma'an that over 500 trees were uprooted and the 23-acre field was completely destroyed.

Rayan blamed settlers from the nearby Revava settlement, noting that tire tracks from settler jeeps were left in the dirt.
