Israeli settlers chop down 35 olive trees in southern Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers chopped down more than 35 olive trees aged more than 25 years from the Wadi al-Sweid area in southern Hebron on Saturday, a popular committee official said.

Rateb al-Jubour, coordinator of the popular committees against the wall and settlements in Hebron and eastern Yatta, pointed out that the chopped down olive trees belong to the Abed Rabbu family.

Separately, al-Jubour added that the "4x4 Palestine Team," a group of Palestinians who own 4x4 vehicles who volunteered to help people in emergencies during the snow storm, had answered more than 40 emergency calls in Yatta and its surroundings. They were mostly ill people in need to be taken to hospitals.

The team also helped a Palestinian whose tent was burned after being struck by lightning.
