Israeli settlers uprooted on Tuesday dozens of olive trees owned by Palestinian farmers in the village of Qarwit near Nablus city, northern West Bank.

Famers said the settlers arrived at lands owned by villagers then uprooted near 250 young olive trees, and took them away.

The mayor of the village told reporters that the settlers gathered the uprooted olive tree near the village and set it on fire.
