Settlers uproot olive groves near Ramallah

Posted in 1 by beyondtheborder on September 5, 2009

Local sources reported that fundamental Israeli settlers of the Neve Yarden illegal settlement outpost, uprooted on Friday olive groves that belong to residents of Al Mghayyir Palestinian village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

The settlers carried their attack out while Israeli soldiers just stood idle and watched them, the sources added.

Several Palestinian residents tried to stop the settlers but the army intercepted them, and barred them from protecting their orchards. 

Clashes were reported as a number of Palestinians hurled stones at the army who protected the settlers instead of removing them out of the Palestinian orchards.
