QALQILIYA, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) set fire to dozens of fruitful olive trees, some of them perennials, in Kafr Kadum village, Qalqiliya city.

Eyewitnesses reported that the trees were burnt down after the Israeli troops fired tear gas and stun grenades on them.

32 olive trees were burnt after the villagers were able to stop the fire from spreading to other trees.

Hundreds of olive trees have been torched since the start of this year by Israeli settlers and troops in different West Bank areas.
