NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Settlers entered village land in Nablus late Friday and damaged 220 olive trees, a Palestinian official said in remarks denied by Israeli military officials.

Settlers from the illegal outpost of Yesh Kodish entered land belonging to the village of Duma and destroyed 220 olive trees, Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said, however, that Palestinians damaged the trees.

The land belongs to Ali Abdul-Hamid, Hasan Salawdah, Zakariyya Salawdah, Hosni Salawdah and Avdul-Raziq Dawabshah.

Settler attacks in the West Bank against Palestinians increased by more than 50 percent in 2011, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Annual figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.

Pal-owned olive trees are usually found on farms and isolated properties they own: No one shud damage them or vandalize any homes and farm- land which they [the vandals] don't own. In most parts of the world, intru- sion upon farmland is trespassing--especially if it is posted [no trespassing signs placed within sight of others, along the property boundry]...Sounds like a case for the Pal Archery Program--Ziiip!..Aaron Allen...
