Illegal Israeli settlers, on Thursday, destroyed dozens of several year old olive trees in the village of Burin, south of Nablus, northern occupied West Bank, according to a local official.

Munir Qadous, with the human rights group, Yesh Din, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that Israeli colonists snuck into Palestinian agricultural land in the village of Burin, and proceeded to chop down at least 36 fully grown Palestinian-owned olive trees.

It was further noted that illegal colonists set fire to the wheat fields in the village, residents were able to extinguish the fire.

There has been a surge in Israeli settler assaults on Palestinian property, for example, on Tuesday, Israeli settlers seized and bulldozed a portion of Palestinian-owned land in Tell and Immatain villages, near Nablus.
