West Bank: Israeli settlers uproot hundreds of Palestinian village's olive trees

Israeli settlers uprooted more than 300 olive trees belonging to Palestinian villagers in the central occupied West Bank, at the peak of olive harvest season.

Farmers from al-Mazraa were surprised to find some 300 olive trees uprooted and broken on Thursday morning.

Saadeh Zaqout, the head of the council's village, told Wafa news agency that the olive trees belonged to Palestinian farmers who have plots near the illegal Israeli settler outpost of Kerem Reim, which is part of the settlement bloc of Gush Talmonim northwest of Ramallah.

Zaqout said that Israeli armed forces had recently blocked a road in the area with cement cubes to prevent Palestinian farmers from accessing their olive trees.
