Spokesperson of the Anti-settlement Popular Committee Mohammad ‘Ayyad said that settlers from Beir ‘Ayn, an illegal settlement constructed on land belonging to Beit Ummar, chopped down 15 olive trees, mainly perennial trees.

‘Ayyad added that this plot of land has been subject to frequent attacks by settlers who uprooted over 300 trees over the past six years.

Although an Israeli court ruled that the Palestinian landowner install a barbed wire around his approximately 80 dunum-area land in order to protect it against settlers’ attacks, the Israeli forces have obstructed the implementation of this ruling, allowing settlers to continue their attacks unabated.
