Illegal Israeli colonists uprooted, on Tuesday, 70 olive trees belonging to Palestinians in Qaryout village, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.

According to local activist Bashar Muammar, villagers were shocked to see that 70 of their perennial olive trees had been uprooted, presumably by illegal colonial settlers.

The damaged trees in the “Bateishah” area, west of Qaryout are located near the illegal “Eli” colony, built on expropriated Palestinian lands.

Israeli settlers have recently escalated their attacks on Palestinian civilians in the occupied West Bank.

According to Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention;

“The Occupying Power [ISRAEL] shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies [PALESTINE].”

Israeli settlers cut off some 70 olive trees in Qaryout, south of Nablus, according to locals, who said they went to the land after they heard the sound of electric saws… Activists estimate settlers destroyed nearly 2,800 trees in the occupied WestBank since the start of 2023.
