A group of Israeli settlers bulldozed on Thursday Palestinian owned farm lands located near the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Local farmers said that Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Tafoah near the village of Yassof south of Nablus arrived at midday with a bulldozer and destroyed crops and trees that belong to the farmers.

They added that soldiers provided protection for the settlers, the villagers added that this is not the first time they are attacked like that and settlers have increased their attacks since the beginning of this year.
