IMEMC & Agencies:
A number of extremist Israeli settlers cut dozens of Palestinian olive trees near Qaryout village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
The settlers came from the Rachel illegal settlement, and cut more than 120 trees in the eastern area, close to the settlement.
The trees belong to resident Mohammad Ahmad Shihada Miqbil.
Israeli settlers carried out dozens of attacks targeting Palestinians lands, orchards, homes and property in different parts of the occupied West Bank, and occupied East Jerusalem.
Last Friday morning, March 8, Israeli settlers uprooted around 120 olive trees in al-Sawya village south of Nablus Friday morning.
Local sources reported that about 90 olive saplings, and 30 fully-grown olive trees, owned by two Palestinians from the village, were uprooted.
The settlers also came from the Rachel illegal settlement.
On Tuesday February 5 2013, a number of extremist Israeli settlers torched two Palestinian vehicles in the Dir Jareer village, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and wrote racist graffiti on the walls of a number of homes in the village.
