Israeli forces uprooted this morning more than 200 olive trees in the village of Deir Istiya, west of the northern West Bank city of Salfit, according to local sources.

They told WAFA that the soldiers uprooted 220 trees that were planted on 12 dunums of land owned by a local resident and located in Area C, which is under full Israeli army rule.

The owner and residents were not allowed to reach the area during the army uprooting of the trees, said the sources.

Israel does not allow Palestinian development in Area C of the West Bank, which makes up over 60 percent of its area.
