SALFIT, (PIC)– Jewish settlers started fire in tens of Palestinian farmland west of Salfit city on Thursday leading to the destruction of 300 olive trees, eyewitnesses reported.

They said that the group of settlers came from Brukhin settlement established on the Bruqin village land west of Salfit and started the fire, which spread in 150 dunums of cultivated land.

A group of settlers from the same settlement burnt 120 dunums of Palestinian farmland a few days ago, which destroyed 45 olive trees.

Settlers have targeted the village of Bruqin on more than one occasion recently and attacked farmers property and homes while the Israeli occupation forces had ordered a few months ago the demolition of the village’s mosque and school.
