Settlers ‘destroy olive trees’ in Hebron

Maan News Agency | April 13, 2012

HEBRON (Ma’an) — Settlers destroyed dozens of olive trees belonging to Hebron villagers on Friday, a local committee said.

Settlers from Maon settlement southeast of Hebron chopped down dozens of trees belonging to Jebril Mousa Khalil, a spokesman for the popular committee against the wall and settlements said.

The settlers also chased shepherds and international activists who were present at the time, following the group to nearby Tuwani village where they then began throwing stones at Palestinian homes.

Israeli forces arrived in the area to protect the settlers, the popular committee said.

Kharoubeh village is located directly opposite the illegal settlement of Maon.

Settlers in the West Bank routinely attack local Palestinians, destroying their property and agricultural land.

Over 90 percent of villages attacked by settlers are under Israeli security control, The Palestine Center says.

In 2011, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported that settler attacks had increased by 50 percent on the previous year
