Jewish-Owned Olive Grove Robbed, Destroyed

A Jewish farmer went to harvest olives Tuesday morning from an olive grove he owns in the Shilo region. To his horror, he found that the grove had been stripped of olives and dozens of trees had been destroyed. All that farmer Erez Ben-Saadon was left with were broken branches, cloth olive sacks with Arabic writing on them, and spilled olives on the ground.
