Israeli Settlers Destroy Palestinian Olive Grove Near Salfit
A group of Israeli settlers invaded the village of Bruqin, near Salfit in the northern West Bank, early Monday morning, and uprooted a grove of 15 olive trees. This follows a similar uprooting of over 100 trees, the week before, in Yatta village.
The Israeli military and settlers have destroyed close to one million Palestinian olive trees since the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza began, according to the Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem. These trees represent the main source of livelihood for thousands of Palestinian families.
