Israeli Settlers Uproot Dozens of Trees near Hebron.

HEBRON, April 11, 2013 (WAFA) -- Jewish settlers Thursday cut down dozens of trees from an area near Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, according to a local activist.

He said the settlers cut and damaged 47 olive trees and 55 grape vines in a plot of land that belonged Hamad Isleibi, 78.

The settlers have also assaulted the landowner while working on his land and threatened to kill him. They also wrote hate graffiti on stones.

This is the fifth time settlers attack Isleibi for working on his land in an attempt to force him to leave it.
