Occupied Jerusalem (The Inside Palestine)_ Israeli settlers cut down olive trees in the village of Kafr al-Dik, west of Salfit in the West Bank, last night.
Local sources reported that settlers from the illegal settlement of Brukhin cut down about 15 olive trees on the northern side of the town of Kafr Al-Deek in the area called “Al-Mars”, owned by Awni Hamdan.
As the occupying power, Israel has the obligation to protect Palestinian civilians from all acts or threats of violence, including by Israeli settlers, and to ensure that attacks are investigated effectively and perpetrators held accountable. The failure to do so has been a longstanding concern of the humanitarian community in the oPt and is believed to contribute to the persistently high levels of settler violence.
