Israeli settlers uproot grape saplings near Ramallah

 Extremist Israeli settlers today uprooted about 400 grape saplings belonging to Palestinians in the village of Turmus-Ayya, to the north of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, according to witnesses.
They said a group of hardcore Israeli settlers raided the outskirts of the village and uprooted 400 grape saplings in a new attack targeting the livelihood of the local Palestinian population. The attacking settlers also destroyed an irrigation network and cut off seven olive trees belonging to local Palestinian villagers.
Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities. It includes arsons of property and mosques, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
