Forty-five olive trees belonging to two Palestinian farmers from the village of Salim, south of Elon Moreh, were cut down by unknown assailants, a resident of the village told The Jerusalem Post on Monday. The incident was confirmed by an officer at the Ariel police station. The resident, who asked not to be identified, said the trees had been sawed and broken about two or three weeks ago. He added that the vandalism was only discovered on Sunday because Salim farmers were afraid to visit their orchards because they were located on the road to Elon Moreh.
