Tuesdays evening, Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Ma'ale Levona, north of Ramallah, have destroyed 45 olive trees owned by Majed Daraghme from al-Leban al-Sharqiya town, south of Nablus.

Zakaria Sadeh, field research coordinator for Rabbis for Human Rights, said the settlers destroyed 45 olive trees in al-Leban, al-Sharqiya town, under the watchful eyes of Israeli soldiers who were on site.

This act clearly violates article 53 from Fourth Geneva Convention, which states that “Any destruction by the Occupying Power of real or personal property belonging individually or collectively to private persons, or to the prohibited, except where such destruction is rendered absolutely necessary by military operations.”

However, according to WAFA correspondence, Israeli soldiers and settlers claimed the land located near 60 Street until Ma'ale Levona was incorporated as a settlement, while Palestinians are now prohibited from cultivating these lands.
