NABLUS, Saturday, October 17, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today vandalized around 30 olive trees in the northern West Bank village of Qaryout, south of Nablus, as the olive harvest season in Palestine is at its peak, according to a local official.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors the illegal Israeli settlement and settler activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that the settlers sneaked into the land during the night and cut the olive trees owned by a local farmer causing him a serious loss of badly needed income.

The olive harvest season is one of the most important income-generating work for thousands of Palestinian families most of them suffering from difficult economic hardships.

Israeli settlers and the occupation army often join hands in sabotaging this season for the Palestinians living under occupation.
