Palestine: Settlers Raid Nablus Village, Uproot Trees

Palestine: Settlers Raid Nablus Village, Uproot Trees

Dozens of Zionist settlers raided the Northern West Bank village Qusra overnight Monday and uprooted more than 190 olive trees, a move normally done by the Zionist settlers to impair Palestinian villagers' source of income to make them leave the place.
 
 (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Several residents of the village, near Nablus, were assaulted, and homes and a tractor were also damaged in the raid, settlement monitoring official Ghassan Daghlas said, Ma'an reported. 

Palestinian security guards chased the settlers, and detained four of them for a short period of time. The Israeli forces quickly intervened, entered the village, and released the settlers, Daghlas said. 

Also overnight, settlers entered Beit Ummar village North of Hebron, and burned a car and tractor belonging to Palestinian resident Suhail Bragheith. 

The vandals also sprayed graffiti saying: "Yitzhar revenge is on the properties today, and tomorrow will be on the souls."
