Official: Settlers uproot 30 olive trees near Nablus

May 26, 2014 7:28 A.M. (Updated: May 27, 2014 11:45 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers uprooted dozens of olive trees in the northern West Bank on Monday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israelis from the settlement of Eli destroyed 30 olive trees in the village of Qaryut south of Nablus.

The trees were located in the al-Mwajeh and al-Marah areas of the village and belonged to Hassan Nimr, Marouh Hamdan, and Othman Suleiman, Daghlas said.

The area around the villages south of Nablus is a frequent site of settler violence and Palestinian clashes with Israeli forces.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
