Israeli settlers Saturday cut down hundreds of fruitful grape trees belonging to Palestinians in the town of al-Khader, in Bethlehem city in the southern West Bank.
 
Ahmad Salah, coordinator of Anti-Settlement Committee in the town, said that Israeli extremist settlers cut down around 200 fruitful vineyards located adjacent to two illegal Israeli settlements: Efrat and Eliezer.

He added that Israeli occupation forces have recently intensified their measures against the town locals as a prelude to take over the land for settlement expansion.
