Settlers return olive trees stolen from Palestinian-owned grove

By Yuval Azoulay, Haaretz Correspondent
Residents of the West Bank settlement outpost of Adei Ad began replanting hundreds of olive trees on Tuesday that they had uprooted from Palestinian lands last week.
The trees were returned to their Palestinian owner, a resident of Kafr Karyut, at the insistence of the Civil Administration. After the farmer complained that some 300 of his trees had been stolen by settlers, the Civil Administration investigated and found that not only had the trees been stolen, but some of them had been replanted in Adei Ad or along the access road to the outpost. It then ordered the settlers to return the trees by on Tuesday.
The settlers prepared the ground at Kafr Karyut for the replanting, laid the infrastructure for an irrigation system, and replanted the first few trees.
