On Thursday evening Israeli occupation forces uprooted more than 700 olive trees in Al-Arroub neighbourhood to the south of the West Bank city of Jenin.

A member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Najat abu-Baker, confirmed that Israeli occupation forces uprooted the seven-year-old olive trees from the Palestinian farms near to the Israeli settlement of Dotan.

Abu-Baker said that uprooting the trees and razing the farms is an act to prepare the area to be annexed to the nearby Israeli settlement.

On Friday morning in Gaza, Israeli troops fired several artillery shells towards the Palestinian farms in Beit-Lahiya city to the north of the Gaza Strip.

Witnesses said that the shelling was accompanied by the invasion of a number of Israeli tanks to the area where the former Israeli settlement of Dogheet was. Clashes between the Israelis and the Palestinian fighters were reported.

Witnesses said that the incursion and the artillery shelling took place in empty areas. Medical sources said that no capsulitis were reported.

Meanwhile, on Friday morning Israeli naval gunships opened fire on Palestinian fishermen with automatic guns whilst fishing in the limited fishing area. Officials affirmed that there was fire directed at the fisherman and also affirmed that there were no casualties.
