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.
