On Thursday 16th August, settlers from Maoun settlement that was built on the lands of Palestinians in Yatta village, uprooted more than 30 olive trees in the land belonging to Fadel Reb'i and his siblings' in al-Hamra, east of Yatta in Hebron.
Coordinator of Popular Committee against Settlement and the Apartheid Wall in Yatta Rateb al-Jbour, said settlers always attack Palestinians' lands, uproot olive trees and burn the crops east of Yatta and in the surrounding areas.
Al-Jbour condemned the settlers' irresponsible practices and condemned the Israeli government for giving them the green light to do such attacks in order to displace the population and impose a new reality under security pretexts.
Al-Jbour revealed that the United Nations ambassador, along with a delegation, has visited the villages threatened with displacement south of Hebron, and looked closely at the poor living conditions that the Palestinians live in these villages and promised to carry their message and requests to the UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon.
