HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers from Kiryat Arba uprooted dozens of olive trees in Hebron on Monday, a local agricultural committee said.

Over 70 olive and plum trees were destroyed by settlers on land belonging to Hamad al-Zaro, the committee said.

Since 1967, 800,000 olive trees have been uprooted by Israeli forces, resulting in a loss of around $55 million to the Palestinian economy, according to a report by the Palestinian Authority Ministry of National Economy and the Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem.
