The Israeli army invaded the village of Budrus, west of the West Bank city of Ramallah late Tuesday night and attacked residents. Eyewitnesses reported that troops searched and ransacked several homes after forcing families out.

Among the homes searched were the house of Tayseer Khalifa, Sammi Ahmed and Mohammad Abdullah. Local residents reported that one Israeli army officer warned residents earlier this month that the army would start invading the town on a daily basis and attack residents if they continue their non violent resistance to the Apartheid Wall, which will illegally annex a lot of the village land to Israel.
