HEBRON (Ma’an) – A group of extremist Israeli settlers on Thursday uprooted several olive trees in Palestinian fields in Beit Ummar north of Hebron, a local spokesman said.

Muhammad Awad, of the local committee against settlements and the separation wall, told Ma’an that settlers from Bat Ayin raided a field owned by Hammad Abdul-Hamid Sleibi in Wadi Abu al-Reish, on the outskirts of Beit Ummar.

The attackers, he said, uprooted several olive trees.

Awad highlighted that Sleibi had been attacked by Israeli settlers several times, and he complained repeatedly to Israeli police but to no avail.
