Israeli settlers have destroyed 350 olive trees in groves near the village of Jit, to the east of Qalqilya, in the latest attack on Palestinian livelihoods in the West Bank.

A group men from the Kedumim settlement felled hundreds trees on Palestinian land, many of which were over 13 years old, according to the farmer’s brother.

The settlers snuck into the olive groves early on Sunday morning and set about destroying the trees before they could be stopped, local resident Ahmad Faruq Sedda told Palestinian news agency Wafa.

Israelis have Destroyed 1 mn Palestinian Olive Trees; Palestinians plant 10,000 new olive trees in the West Bank every year. So far this year, Israeli settlers are estimated to have destroyed 4,000 of them... Instead of preventing the settlers’ violence, the Israeli army were filmed attacking journalists who were covering the attack on Palestinians...There are about 750,000 illegal Israeli settlers living in Jewish-only settlements across the occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank on land stolen from the Palestinians by Israel against the International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention...Olives make up15 percent of the agricultural income which accounts for 5.5 percent of the Palestinian GDP.
