Published today 20:10

SALFIT (Ma’an) — Israeli forces uprooted dozens of olive trees on Tuesday in Deir Istiya in the northern West Bank, local officials told Ma’an.

Village mayor Nazmi Sulaiman said some of the trees uprooted had been planted more than five years ago on land belonging to Kamal Muhammad Abdul Rahman.

The mayor said such procedures were part of an Israeli plan to forces villagers from their land.

The village is close to the illegal Jewish-only Rafafa settlement.
