QALQILIA, (PIC)– Jewish settlers set tens of Palestinian olives trees on fire in Kufr Qaddoum village, near Qalqilia, on Friday as Israeli occupation forces (IOF) wounded six citizens in the same village while quelling a protest march.

The blaze destroyed tens of olive trees before the Palestinian fire brigades managed to extinguish it, local sources reported.

They noted, meanwhile, that IOF soldiers used force to disperse a peaceful march organized by the village’s municipal council to demand opening the northern  entrance to the village that connect it to 1948 occupied land.

The sources said that the IOF used teargas to break up the march in which hundreds of citizens participated, adding that six of the participants were treated for breathing difficulty.
