The International Middle East Media Centre reports:

A group of fanatic illegal Israeli colonialist settlers burnt, Tuesday, dozens of Palestinian olive trees in Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, the WAFA Palestinian News Agency has reported.

Eyewitnesses said the armed paramilitary colonists invaded olive orchards in the area between Burin and Huwwara and burnt the trees.

They added that the fire consumed at least 70 olive trees, before Palestinian firefighters managed to extinguish it.

The attack was carried out less the 24 hours after the colonists cut and uprooted 36 Palestinian olive trees in isolated behind the illegal Annexation Wall, and the Palestinians cannot enter them without a permit from the Israeli army.
