Israel orders 1,000 Palestinian trees uprooted

anticapitalist:

Israeli authorities in the West Bank have ordered that 1,000 olive trees planted by Palestinians must be uprooted as they were planted without coordination with officials

Palestinians can’t even plant fucking trees without Israel being full of shit.

Gah.

This is unfortunate, though to put the story in context we have to remember how the West Bank is divided up administratively. Nablus is surrounded by nature reserve land to the East, and Area C (Israeli controlled) to the West. As you can see most of the cities are under complete Palestinian control, but the outlying land is often where things become contested. The unfortunate thing is once land administratively becomes Area B or C, everything built or planted can be removed immediately unless permits are obtained. The gist of the story I’m getting from several sources is that this was done as an act of protest, knowing full-well the potential implications. It is a brazen and peaceful act, but unfortunately this happens to trees and houses throughout the West Bank nearly every week. I apologize for the poor resolution of this map, but it has the city names on there for your reference as well:
