Mar 16,2020

Over the past three weeks, Israeli Jewish settlers, who live in Israeli settlements, have uprooted about 1,200 olive and vine trees in al Khader town and nearby village of Wadi Fukin in Bethlehem.

Israeli Jewish settlers uprooted on Monday morning tens of vine tress in the village of Khirbet Beit Iskariya in the south of the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Hassan Breijieh, from the Wall and Settlement Resistance Commission, said that the Israeli Jewish settlers uprooted about 50 trees in the village.

Over the past three weeks, Israeli Jewish settlers, operating under Israeli army protection, have uprooted about 1,200 olive and vine trees in al Khader town and nearby village of Wadi Fukin in Bethlehem.

On Sunday, the illegal Israeli Jewish settlers raided the village of Huwara in the West Bank city of Nablus and vandalised Palestinian vehicles and homes.

In December 2016, the UN Security Council declared that Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are illegal and deemed their continuing construction a “flagrant violation” of the international law.
