The army invaded the village, and provoked dozens of residents by questioning them and checking their ID cards while pushing them around, an issue that pushed several residents to hurl stones and empty bottles at them, local sources reported.

The army fired gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets mildly wounding four youths, while several other residents were treated for the effects of teargas inhalation; most of them were in their homes.

Also, soldiers detained and interrogated several residents at a mourning house in the town, and also broke into a nearby home forcing the family out before searching it under the claim that youths who allegedly hurled stones at them run into the property.

The village is subject to frequent invasions by the army as the soldiers claim that village’ youths hurl stones and empty bottles at troops stationed near the Annexation Wall that surrounds the village from three directions.
