Spokesman: Vineyards damaged in Beit Ummar

Maan News Agency
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Vineyards bordering an Israeli settlement were vandalized Friday, according to a Palestinian activist who blamed settlers from Karmi Zur for the damage.

Muhammad Awad said local residents discovered the vandalism early Saturday. They "found that vine trees were sprayed with a chemical which dried the leaves and blossoms," he said.

He said a heated argument erupted between Israeli guards and the residents, Ali Awad and his wife.
