Israeli settlers have chopped down scores of Palestinian olive trees in the occupied Western Bank, according to a local activist on Tuesday.
“At least 100 olive trees were uprooted by settlers on Monday night in Shi'b al-Batin, east of Yatta in Hebron,” Fuad Al-Amor told Anadolu Agency.
He said the landowner of the trees has filed a complaint to Israeli police over the settler attack.
Palestinian farmers complain of repeated attacks on their farmlands by Israeli soldiers and settlers.
According to the Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Camping -- a coalition of Palestinian non-governmental organizations --, 2020 was the harshest year for the farmers. More than 8,400 olive trees were uprooted or burned.
