PHOTOS: Settlers damage trees in Hebron Hills

Israeli settlers uprooted and damaged some 70 olive trees near the village of At-Tuwane in the South Hebron Hills early Friday morning. The trees belong to At-Tuwane residents Khader al-Amour and Kayed al-Amour.

Alongside the damaged trees was graffiti in Hebrew saying “price tag”, “mutual guarantee” and “sick of the thieves”.  “Price tag” is a euphemism for hate crimes committed against Palestinians by Israeli extremists. These hate crimes began in response to Israeli government moves to dismantle unauthorized settler outposts or following attacks against settlers, although in the past year have also targeted Christian institutions.immagine2

The may of At-Tuwani, Mohammad Rabei, condemned the incident and settlers’ continuous attacks on villagers. Rabei told the Palestinian media outlet Ma’an that settlers were trying to force Palestinians to leave the village.immagine3

Questa mattina un gruppo di coloni israeliani dell’insediamento di Maon, a Sud di Hebron, ha sradicato oltre 70 alberi di ulivo nel villaggio palestinesi di At-Tuwani (South Hebron Hills).
Gli alberi appartenevano a Khader e Kayed Al-Amour. Obiettivo dei coloni, secondo il comitato locale del villaggio, è confiscare terra palestinese per l’espansione ulteriore della colonia.
