AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Jewish settlers on Monday attacked the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar in Al-Khalil and destroyed 45 fruitful olive trees under protection of the Israeli occupation forces (IOF), local sources reported.

Mohammed Awad, the spokesman for the national anti wall and settlement committee in the town, said that the settlers came from the Beit Ayan settlement north of Beit Ummar and attacked four areas.

He explained that the settlers assaulted Palestinian farmers, prevented them from tending to their land, and uprooted the 45 olive trees after which the IOF declared those areas closed military zones.
