Settlers destroy 50 olive trees near Hebron, locals say

Feb. 24, 2013 2:27 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 26, 2013 11:53 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers uprooted over 50 olive trees in the Hebron village of Beit Awwa on Sunday, locals said.

Khalid Muhammad al-Suiati told Ma'an that his father found at least 50 olive trees uprooted and a number of grapevines damaged after arriving to work on his land early Sunday.

The trees were planted 35 years ago, al-Suiati added.

Settler attacks on Palestinians and their property are routine in the West Bank and rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
