More Tree Vandalism in Palestine: over a Thousand Trees Uprooted in Jewish Orange Groves Near Jaffa

Download PDF for this date

Over a thousand trees have been uprooted in Jewish orange groves in the Jaffa district by unknown vandals during the past few nights. The work is suspected to be that of Arabs who have lately committed a great deal of vandalism of this kind.

In January 2,500 young trees were reported to have been uprooted on Jewish National Fund land in the Nahalel district. Several Bedouins were arrested on suspicion, but were again released because there was no proof against them.
