 השריפה שהציתו מתנחלי יצהר

At 1:30 PM today settlers from Yitzhar set fire to a large grove of olive trees belonging to the Palestinian village of Burin. The grove is near the settlement. 

They set tires on fire and rolled them into the grove, so the fire spread rapidly.  Many large olive trees were burned.  There’s no estimate yet of the damage. 

Of course, firefighters weren’t able to arrive and extinguish the blaze.
