Today June 25 2017, 45 olive trees, aged around forty years old, were found destroyed near the Palestinian village of Burin, outside the Yitzhar settlement. The damage was done just adjacent to Route 60, the main road running through the West Bank. Graffiti reading “revenge” was also sprayed.

On Saturday, 24 June, twelve olive trees were discovered destroyed in a grove belonging to the village of Turmus Ayya. A Palestinian  present documented a group of settlers who claimed to be connected to the crime and the arrival of the security forces while the settlers were still present. As far as we know, no one was detained for questioning. Rabbis for Human Rights will work to clarify the details of the incident.

Haaretz: Nine attacks by settlers have been caught on camera in two months. Zero have been indicted.

    Such hate…destruction to humans and the land…and the destroyers ultimately destroy themselves.
