Settlers uproot trees in Beit Ummar, spray racist slogans

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers attacked agricultural fields in Hebron-district village Beit Ummar late Saturday, a local official said.

Dozens of settlers stormed agricultural fields and uprooted olive and fruit trees, local committee against the wall official Muhammad Ayyad Awad said.

The land belongs to Hammad Abdul-Hamid Sleibi.

The settlers reportedly came from Bat Ayin settlement, north of Beit Ummar, and also sprayed racist slogans in the village.

"Death to Arabs" and "Kahane was right", in reference to the founder of a far-right anti-Arab political party, were found on village property, Awad said.
