The attack took place after Israeli soldiers fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at Israeli peace activists who arrived at the scene in an attempt to prevent a group of extremist settlers from uprooting Palestinian farmlands.

The attack is one of dozens of similar attacks carried out by extremist Israeli settlers against Palestinian villagers and their lands in several parts of the occupied West Bank and in occupied East Jerusalem.

On Friday July 15, settlers torched Palestinian olive orchards in Jabal Suleiman area, close to Burin village, south of Nablus.

The attack was carried out by a group of twenty heavily armed settlers who set ablaze at least 80 Dunams of farmlands, including dozens of olive trees.

Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene but failed to stop the settlers, but instead, obstructed the work of local firefighters.
