West Bank: Palestinian Olive Trees burned by Israeli Settlers

West Bank

On Tuesday afternoon, settlers from Yitzhar set fire to a large olive tree grove belonging to the neighbouring Palestinian village of Burin. According to eyewitnesses, a group of settlers descended the hill on quad bikes, torching the  grove, as Palestinian villagers watched the fire spread through the mountainside.

This is the third time this month fires were set in Burin by settlers.
