The trees, belonging to a Palestinian resident, identified as Ikrimah Jihad Al-Deek found 50 of his olive saplings uprooted and cut by illegal colonists from one of the several nearby settlements.

Local farmer Youssef Abu Safiya, a member of the ‘National Committee for the Defense of Lands’ stated;

“bulldozers razed large areas of the lands of the citizens of the towns of Kafr Ad-Deek and Bidya, located in the Dahr Sobh area, with the aim of seizing them and using them for agricultural purposes.”
