Settlers uproot 200 olive trees south of Nablus



 
Ma'an - NABLUS – Israeli residents living on an illegal West Bank outpost uprooted over 200 olive trees near the Qusra village in the Nablus district Monday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

PA settlement affairs officer in the northern West Bank Ghassan Doughlas said residents of the nearby Svhut Rachel outpost ascended upon the village, uprooting the olive grove which belonged to Ali Abdul Hamid Mohammad Hassan.

Doughlas called on the international community to pressure Israel to stop settler attacks against Palestinians and their property.
