QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Residents of the illegal Zufin settlement on Tuesday set fire to fields behind an area of the separation wall in Qalqiliya, witnesses said.

Witnesses reported seeing a group of settlers in the area before a vast area of olive fields was set alight.

They said Palestinian firefighters were denied access to the area by Israeli soldiers stationed at a gate in the separation wall, which completely encircles the city of Qalqiliya.
