NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Settlers destroyed over 40 olive trees in the Nablus district on Monday, a Palestinian official said.

Luay al-Saadi, director of the Palestinian Civil District Liaison Office in Nablus, told Ma'an that settlers from an illegal outpost destroyed olive trees belonging to Ahmad Abd al-Fattah Khalifa in the village of Burin.

Farmers arrived at their land early Monday to find their trees destroyed.

Since 1967, approximately 800,000 olive trees have been uprooted in the occupied West Bank, according to a joint report by the Palestinian Authority and the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.
