A number of Israeli settlers invaded Palestinian lands that belongs to a resident of the Al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem, uprooted dozens of olive saplings and grapevines, and demolished a wall.

Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall in Al-Khader, stated that the settlers uprooted and stole more than 80 olive saplings, planted nearly two year ago in Batn Al-Ma’sy area, south of the town.

He added that the attacked lands belong to resident Ala’ Omar Issa, and that the settlers also uprooted newly planted grapevines, and demolished a wall surrounding the lands.

Salah said that the escalation against the Palestinians, their lands and property, is part of an ongoing Israeli campaign meant at forcing the residents to abandon their lands so that they can be used for settlement construction and expansion activities.

On Saturday morning, [October 19, 2013], a number of extremist settlers invaded Palestinian olive orchards in Qaryout village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and uprooted more than 100 olive trees.

On Friday, [October 17] settlers illegally occupied 20 Dunams (4.94 Acres) of Palestinian lands that belong to residents of Aseera Al-Qebliyya village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and fenced the lands preventing the owners from entering them.

On Saturday, October 12, extremist settlers attacked and injured two Palestinian children in Susiya village, east of Yatta town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron. The settlers also hurled stones at residents harvesting their olive trees in the area.

Medial sources said that a woman identified as Sameeha Nawaj’a, 40 years of age, and Nasser Mohammad Nawaj’a, 33, suffered various cuts and bruises. Eyewitnesses said the settlers also killed a sheep.
