Ten olive trees were seriously damaged early Sunday morning by Israeli settlers in the South Hebron Hills. The olive trees, located in the Humra valley located adjacent to the Israeli outpost of Havat Ma'on (Hill 833), belong to Ibrahim Rabai from the nearby village of At-Tuwani.

The number of Palestinian-owned trees uprooted and damaged in the South Hebron Hills area since January 2012 now rises to 177, the majority of which are located in the Humra valley. 
Olive trees are an essential resource for the Palestinian community in the South Hebron Hills area, and their damage results in substantial economic losses for local residents.
