HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers uprooted over 50 olive trees in the Hebron village of Beit Awwa on Sunday, locals said.

Khalid Muhammad al-Suiati told Ma'an that his father found at least 50 olive trees uprooted and a number of grapevines damaged after arriving to work on his land early Sunday.

The trees were planted 35 years ago, al-Suiati added.

Settler attacks on Palestinians and their property are routine in the West Bank and rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

Under US tax code , donating trees and funds for the Jewish Fund is Tax deductable. In America , people are told that The israelis made the desert green. Little do they know that environmental terrorists are cutting trees down , and Palestinain lands are being confiscated to create settlements and Nature Reserves , that are planted by evergreens paid for by the US taxpayers......

More destroyed olive trees. The settlers are true terrorists. Should be dealt with as if they were Palestinians. That is, very harshly.

maybe their God will deal with them. According to the mitzvot, it is forbidden to destroy fruit trees, "even during a seige" - mitzvot see 604.
