Israeli Forces, Settlers Raze Land, Uproot Trees in West Bank

Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA NABLUS, March 15, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces and settlers razed large areas of agricultural land and uprooted dozens of olive trees in the northern West Bank cities of Nablus and Salfit, local sources said Thursday.

Israeli bulldozers razed about 12 dunums of land belonging to Abu Kanaan family in Beit Dajan, a village east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, uprooting dozens of olive trees in, according to head of the village council Nasser Abu Jaish.

Meanwhile, Jewish settlers protected by soldiers razed late Wednesday large areas of land and uprooted dozens of olive trees in an area located behind the apartheid wall.

One of the land owners, Ali Yousef, said that when farmers entered their land they were surprised to find a number of settlers from a nearby settlement razing their land and uprooting their trees and when they tried to stop the settlers, Israeli forces asked them to leave the area.
