The residents of Nokdim discovered that a grove they planted in memory of Ori Ansbacher HY”D , the 19-year-old girl from Tekoa who was brutally terrorized, raped and murdered a few weeks ago, had been uprooted and the trees stolen.
The desecration took place over Shabbos, while the Jews from the settlement were in shul. Videos captured by security cameras show the Arab men uprooting the trees and running off with them.
The incident is part of an ongoing issue of Palestinians attacking and destroying Israeli farmlands. Tens of thousands of dunams of farmland and forest were destroyed in fires this past year due to fire kites launched by Gaza terrorists.
