Israeli settlers uproot 300 olive trees near Ramallah

Israeli settlers late on Sunday evening uprooted 300 olive trees from Palestinian lands near the central occupied West Bank province of Ramallah. Palestinian farmer Ali al-Haj, from Ramallah’s eastern town of Mikhmas, said hordes of Israeli settlers crept into the area late at night and cut down some 300 olive trees from Palestinian cultivated lands. Al-Haj added that olive trees were planted some 40 years ago and have been serving as the only source of income for local land owners. In al-Haj’s terms, Israeli settlers have often attempted to grab Palestinian land lots in the area in favor of illegal settlement construction.
