HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers cut down over 70 Palestinian olive trees in the Hebron district on Monday, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that the settlers destroyed over 70 tree saplings near the town of Sair.

The trees had been planted a week ago in an area threatened with annexation near the illegal settlement of Metzad, located in the Gush Etzion bloc west of Bethlehem.

Locals have organized a campaign to replant the trees.
