Witnesses reported at least 15 military jeeps and armored personnel carriers raiding the camp from several directions, upon which dozens of houses were broken into. The house of senior Palestinian People’s Party official, Muhammad Mansour, was also raided; he was questioned in the street, while several flags were confiscated from his house.
