Israeli forces uproot 320 trees in Hebron-area land

Oct. 22, 2018 5:44 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 23, 2018 1:09 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces razed and leveled 14 dunums of Palestinian-owned lands in the Jamrura area in western Tarqumiya of the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on Monday afternoon.

One of the land owners, Ali Fatafta, told the Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa News Agency that Israeli forces destroyed two water wells and uprooted 320 olive and almond trees.

Israeli forces raided Fatafta's family land, razed it and uprooted 320 olive and almond trees without any prior notice.

He added that Israeli forces prevented landowners and others from reaching their land, which they cultivate every year and live off of its crops.

Fatafta said that the trees are aged between 5 to 7 years, pointing out that the family was preparing to harvest the trees as the olive-picking season has begun.
