Jewish settlers uproot 120 olive trees south Nablus.

Ramallah, Oct 9 (Petra)--Jewish settlers on Tuesday uprooted 120 olive trees in Qaryout village, south of the West Bank city of Nablus.

Head of Settlements File in the northern part of the West Bank, Ghassan Douglas, said in a statement that the settlers came from a nearby settlement, which was constructed on Palestinian lands, and uprooted around 120 olive trees in the village.

Jewish settlers wage daily attacks against Palestinian farmers in the cities of the West Bank, especially in southern Nablus, which increase during the olive harvest season.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces today stormed the West Bank cities of Nablus and Hebron and arrested four local citizens.
