Israeli settlers torch olive trees near Nablus city

A group of Israeli settlers have torched Palestinian-owned crops of olive trees in the villages of Burin and Madama, south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to a local source.

 

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement construction in the northern West Bank, said settlers from the Yitzhar settlement, south of Nablus city, have torched hundreds of olive trees owned by Palestinian farmers in the Burin and Madama villages.

 

Earlier on Sunday, large swathes of agricultural land were also set on fire by extremist settlers in nearby Beita village.
