NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Monday destroyed over 150 olive trees belonging to Palestinian farmers south of Nablus, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a PA official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a group of settlers from Yitzhar raided the Huwwara village and cut down over 150 trees.

The trees belonged to Nayif Khadir Audah, Ghazi Dawood Salim and Fatima Audah and some were located on property belonging to a local mosque.

On Sunday, settlers destroyed over 60 olive trees in Huwwara using chainsaws.

The area around the villages south of Nablus is a frequent site of settler violence and Palestinian clashes with Israeli forces as it is located beside the notoriously violent Israeli settlement of Yitzhar.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

Sound carries so well in a quiet village. How is it possible that the cutting down of over 100 trees makes no noise. This is not the first time i have read about settlers cutting trees. how do they do it silently? HOW ?

if over thousands of civilians can be killed in Palestine without any international debate, cutting down of trees is as easy as abc.....
