SALFIT, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) destroyed 100 olive trees in the Salfit village of Masha to make way for building a section of the separation wall, local sources said on Wednesday.

Farmer Mohammed Amer appealed for an end to the destruction of his olive trees, charging that the IOF soldiers were destroying the trees to expand the nearby Jewish settlement of Ornet.

He told the media that he was stunned when he arrived at the site to witness IOF bulldozers uprooting his trees, adding that most probably the act started since yesterday.

He said that the IOF soldiers’ destruction streak covered hundreds of dunums of cultivated land owned by farmers in Masha and Azzun Atma.
