Settlers uproot olive trees near Nablus

May 29, 2013 6:08 P.M. (Updated: May 30, 2013 12:17 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers uprooted over 300 olive trees near the village of Awarta southeast of Nablus on Wednesday, a local official said.

The Israeli liaisons office told its Palestinian counterparts that over 300 olive trees inside the fences of Itamar, settler-monitoring official Ghassan Daghlas told Ma’an.

He said the trees were within the settlement's boundaries but belonged to Palestinians.

Daghlas described the incident as a "new crime" against Palestinians and accused the Israeli army standing by instead of protecting civilians under occupation.
