Troops invaded the village of Atil near the city and arrested nine residents said to be Islamic Jihad Activists, while one more was arrested during an invasion of the nearby village of Alar. All of the arrestees names remain unknown, local sources reported.

Soldiers sealed off the city by closing the main roads with roadblocks and a checkpoint which cut off the city from the surrounding villages.
