NABLUS (Ma'an) – Extremist Jewish settlers chopped down more than 100 olive trees Saturday morning in Deir Sharaf village south of Nablus, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that settlers from Shave Shomron settlement stormed olive fields in the al-Ghazan neighborhood of Deir Sharaf and destroyed more than 100 trees. He highlighted that the attack came a few days before the olive harvest.

The trees belong to Yasser Fuqaha, Sidqi Fuqaha, Mustafa Fuqaha and other farmers from the Meri family.

On Friday, a mob of settlers assaulted Palestinian farmer Abdul-Rahman Ibrahim Awad while he was picking olives in his field in Jammain village south of Nablus. He was forced to leave the field at gunpoint after the assailants completely destroyed his private vehicle.

Heartless & cruel. I am outraged. This is why I only buy Palestinian olive oil, to show my support for the farmers there, farming in such dangerous areas.

Yes, I only buy Palestinian olive oil too, but soon there'll be none left to buy! They're destroying the trees faster than they can be planted!

How unbelievable that religious Jews would cut down trees on the most Holy day of the week, an action absolutely forbidden, as by the way, is the destruction of any fruit bearing trees, (read your bible) and that supposedly intelligent people in UK would believe this Pally wood propaganda. Where were the mobile phones and videos usually in use for any exchange between Israelis and Arabs. Where is the report on the deliberate and highly praised (by the PA) shooting of a nine year old Israeli gir

This will not stop us from continuing to farm our land. I live in California, my parents ship me olive oil directly from our Olive groves in Palestine every year. It's a tradition that will continue through generations to come. They will not stop us.
