Brief narrative

IOF uproots olive trees to build settler road in Nablus



NABLUS, (PIC) + - Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Wednesday uprooted dozens of Palestinian-owned olive trees to build a settler road in Yasuf village in the West Bank district of Nablus.


Local residents said that this move is just a prelude to the confiscation of vast tracts of Palestinian land in Yasuf and neighboring villages to complete the new road.


At least 3,000 olive trees are expected to be uprooted in the process.


Yasuf, surrounded by three Israeli settlements built illegally on Palestinian land, is one of the most affected villages in Nablus by Israel’s settlement activity.


The Palestinians consider this new road a “dangerous” project that contributes to turning Israel’s isolated settlements in the southern area of Nablus into large cities that would undermine efforts for the establishment of a Palestinian state.
