HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers in the south Hebron hills uprooted around 400 olive trees belonging to a Palestinian farmer, locals said.

Abu Iyad Housheh visited his land near the Carmiel settlement on Thursday and found the two to three-year old trees had been destroyed overnight.

He has filed a complaint to the Israeli police. Police, soldiers and Israeli civil administration officers were summoned to the land to witnesses the destruction, he said.

Abu Housheh told Ma'an he will replant the trees, and will not be intimidated by settlers.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs reported that over 7,500 olive trees belonging to Palestinians were destroyed in 2011.
