I originally posted the following information and commentary onto the Facebook wall of family…
Settlers Uproot Hundreds of Trees Near Ramallah:
Israeli settlers uprooted over 600 recently planted olive and almond saplings in a village north of Ramallah on Wednesday, a Palestinian Authority official said. Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that a group of settlers from Givat Ariel and Maale Levona uprooted newly planted saplings in the village of Sinjil.Daghlas said Israeli police opened an investigation into the incident.
My Commentary: Interestingly enough, this article is from yesterday.
It is also worth mentioning that the report also states, “over 7,500 olive trees were damaged or destroyed by settlers between January and mid-October in 2012, according to OCHA [Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, United Nations].”
