Two minors were arrested by police in the West Bank after they were caught cutting down and damaging olive trees on Palestinian property.



The two were taken into custody for interrogation.



Cutting down olive trees is considered vandalism and the method has been used previously in 'price tag' attacks against Palestinians. Olive trees provide a major source of income for many Palestinians.
