Israeli settlers cut down 700 vine trees in Hebron

PNN/ Hebron/

On Saturday evening, extremist Israeli settlers cut down 700  vine trees from the lands of Baloutat Eweis, east of Hebron, southern West Bank.

The targeted 12 dunums of vineyards are located next to the 60 bypass road east of Hebron, and are property of two brothers from the Tamimi Family.

The settlers cut down the fruited trees with a mechanical saw, and sprayed slogans on the walls of the land in Hebrew saying “Returning everywhere” and “No to agricultural terrorism,” in what seems to refer to the burning of Israeli settlement farms outside of Gaza using burning kites.

In the past few days, some 1,000 trees have been planted in the town of Halhul, north of Hebron.
