Resident Mohammad Sabateen told the WAFA News Agency that, as he went to his orchard in Wadi Abu al-Hasan area, east of Husan, he found out that the settlers uprooted at least fifty olive saplings.

The orchard is located near the illegitimate Boaz settlement outpost, installed on private Palestinian property.

Sabateen added that, in February of this year, fanatic settlers invaded his orchard, and uprooted more than 60 olive saplings.

Israeli settlers are responsible for hundreds of attacks against Palestinian orchards and farmlands, in addition to flooding Palestinian farmlands with sewage.

On Wednesday, February 19, 2014, a number of extremist settlers invaded Palestinian olive orchards, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, uprooting more than 700 saplings.

Other attacks include defacing and burning several mosques and churches, attacking and defacing graves in Islamic and Christian graveyards, burning Palestinian-owned cars, slashing tires and writing racist graffiti, including anti-Islamic and anti-Christian graffiti.

The attacks took place in different parts of occupied Palestine, including occupied Jerusalem.

On Saturday evening, settlers attacked Palestinian homes and stores in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, while Israeli soldiers attacked local residents and kidnapped three.
