Israeli Settlers Uproot Olive Saplings, Attack Herders South of Hebron

Israeli settlers today uprooted 60 olive saplings and attacked livestock herders in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, Fouad al-Amour, told WAFA that said that settlers barged their way into the olive groves of Jalal al-‘Amoud in Khallet Ad-Dabi‘, one of the hamlets making up Masafer Yatta, and destroyed 60 olive saplings.

He added that the settlers assaulted livestock herders and attempted to force them out of pastures.

This came a day after Israeli forces razed four water wells in the same locality.

The locality has been a target of frequent attacks, including demolishing agricultural structures, blocking roads, tightening movement restrictions and opening fire towards Palestinians protesting colonial settlement construction.
