Palestinian Vandals Attack Israeli Agriculture in West Bank

(Jerusalem Post) Ilanit Chernick - Vandals threw a firebomb that ignited a cherry tree orchard in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion in the West Bank on Tuesday on land belonging to the Jewish National Fund. Yaron Rosenthal, director of the Kfar Etzion Field School, said Israeli farmers have been exposed for years to such attacks. Earlier this year, 200 cherry trees were uprooted and destroyed at a kibbutz in Gush Etzion. In another incident, Palestinians uprooted and stole 50 trees in the Gush Etzion community of Nokdim planted in memory of terrorist victim Ori Ansbacher. In January, vandals destroyed dozens of vines at Israeli-owned vineyards in Shiloh and Hebron. Days earlier, vandals uprooted an Israeli-owned vineyard in the Jordan Valley.
