SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers accompanied by soldiers early Thursday uprooted dozens of trees in the West Bank's Salfit district, locals said.

Abd al-Halim Mansour, a resident of the village of Deir Istiya, told Ma'an that Israeli bulldozers began uprooting trees near his village.

Palestinians from the village tried to prevent the bulldozers from uprooting the trees, but Israeli forces fired tear gas to disperse them, Mansour said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that following "activity" by Israel's Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories, dozens of Palestinians gathered in the area and a "riot erupted."

Israeli forces responded with "riot dispersal means," she said.

TINY TREES BY ARABS ARE put in the ground, to claim land, JUST LIKE SETTLEMENTS BY JEWS, to claim land, and both claims will remain disputed, until negotiations are complete.

'Israeli forces uproot trees in Salfit village.' Feral swine in uniforms are DEFINITELY a novelty.

Cannot imagine what they have against baby trees. Must have been done out of pure spite.

Deir Istiya is not in Area C, to begin with. And furthermore, 'Arabs' (by which I assume you mean Palestinians) do not put saplings in the ground to 'claim land'. They are only trying to keep the land they've always had, while settlers try to take it away from them. Olive saplings are often planted after settlers chop down mature olive trees, some of them hundreds of years old. There are too many anti-Palestinian trolls commenting here.
