A group of eight masked men felled some 15 olive trees belonging to Palestinians and damaged others, some of them ancient, military sources said on Tuesday. Residents of the village Bourin, near the Jewish settlement Yitzhar in Samaria, alerted the IDF and police who sped to the spot, but the perpetrators, suspected as being settlers, fled the scene. On Monday settlers burned trees, stoned Palestinian vehicles and allegedly assaulted Palestinians in response to the Civil Administration's destruction of illegal structures in three outposts.
