Settlers 'uproot 100 trees, spray racist graffiti' in Nablus

Nov. 7, 2012 2:27 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 8, 2012 10:57 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers uprooted over 100 olive trees and sprayed racist graffiti in a Nablus village on Wednesday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers from Rechalim sprayed "Death to Arabs" and "Price Tag" on the walls of al-Sawiya village.

The olive trees were planted on land belonging to Hamad Salih Mahmoud Hijazi, Salih Naser Gazi and Mustafa Ali.

The Nablus district experienced the majority of settler violence in 2011.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs reported that over 2,500 olive trees were destroyed in September 2011, and 7,500 throughout 2011.

Settler attacks on Palestinian communities and their property are systematic and rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
