Israeli settlers uproot 60 olive saplings in northern West Bank village

NABLUS, Israeli settlers today uprooted and stole about 60 olive saplings from a land in the village of Jaloud, to the south of the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus, local sources said.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that a number of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Ahiya uprooted and stole 60 olive saplings from a plot of land in the village.
He added that this is the second time Israeli settlers uproot olive trees in the same village in a matter of few days.
Yesterday, a group of settlers from an illegal settlement sneaked into the eastern part of the village of Qusra, south of Nablus, where they uprooted and stole 130 olive saplings, and soldiers before that uprooted 3000 olive trees in the village of Deir Ballout, west of Salfit, also in the north of the West Bank.
