Shortly before 2am, the occupation forces invaded Bil’in once again. They raided the house of Basil Mansour Ali Mansour (age 32), a member of the Bil’in Popular Committee, in an attempt to arrest him, but he was not at home at the time.
About a dozen soldiers had entered the house when Palestinian and international activists arrived at the site. Another 15 soldiers surrounded the house preventing anyone from approaching during their search operation. They aggressively pushed the activists away from the house, declaring it a closed military area, and prohibiting any filming. They grabbed the camera of the local cameraman, Haitham Al-Khatib, damaging it.
At 3am, the occupation forces left the house without any victim and exited the village in five jeeps.
