Peace Now Secretary General Yariv Oppenheimer, sharply criticized the settler movement's tree-planting initiative to grab land around existing outposts, Army Radio reported Wednesday.

"The settlers have continued to plant hatred and dispair and flagrantly violate the law," Oppenheimer said, adding: "The Prime Minister and the Defense Ministry hold the responsibility for stopping this land plundering during Israel's holidays."

This morning, Hasdei Me'ir, followers of the deceased Rav Kahane, announced their intention to plant 20,000 fruit trees surrounding their outposts in the West Bank.
