NABLUS, -- Many Palestinian citizens were injured on Wednesday when they tried to stop Zionist settlers backed by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) from burning their olive trees in two villages in Nablus district, local sources reported.
They said that Zionist settlers on Tuesday night and at dawn Wednesday burnt more than 200 dunums of farmland cultivated with fruitful olive trees and the villagers could not put off the fire due to the intensified presence of those settlers, who were supported by the IOF troops.
Zionist settlers almost daily attack Palestinian villages in Nablus district under the protection of the IOF soldiers targeting fruitful trees. They either burn or cut off those trees.
