MAAN NEWS AGENCY FEBR 20 2012

NABLUS (Ma’an) — An Israeli military drill in the northern West Bank on Monday damaged hundreds of dunams of Palestinians crops, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Hundreds of soldiers drove through planted fields and practiced shooting, destroying the agriculture, Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors northern West Bank settlement activity, told Ma’an.

He said Israel was trying to destroy Palestinian livelihoods in the large swathes of the West Bank under its control in order to push them to leave.
