Israeli authorities 'uproot trees in Hebron village'
Israeli authorities uprooted around 350 trees while leveling fields in a southern West Bank village on Tuesday morning, the Land Research Center said.
Bulldozers, escorted by Israeli forces, demolished stone terraces and uprooted around 100 olive trees on 13,000 square meters of land belonging to Hasan Muhammad Abdul-Ghani Al-Amlah in the Attous area of Beit Ula village, the center said.
Authorities razed approximately 250 fruit trees in and uprooted irrigation networks in nearby groves belonging Fayiz Muhammad Abdul-Ghani Al-Amlah, they added.
The Jerusalem-based research group said Israeli authorities designate Al-Amlah's land as Israeli state property and ordered him to vacate. A court hearing was scheduled for Tuesday, but forces razed the land before it could take place, the center said.
