IMEMC & Agencies: Sunday morning a number of extremist Israeli settlers, burnt dozens of Palestinian olive saplings, and trees, that belong to residents of the Al-Khader town, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Local sources have reported that a group of settlers of the Efrat settlement, built on lands illegally confiscated from the villagers, invaded the orchards, burnt approximately 80 olive saplings, in addition to nearly 20 trees (almond, apricot, peach trees).

The settlers took most of the uprooted trees and saplings with them back into the settlement, the Radio Bethlehem 2000 has reported.
