The Governor of the region described the action as another tool used by the Israeli occupiers to put pressure on residents to leave their homeland. He mentioned the huge swaths of agricultural and pastoral land that have been confiscated by the occupation and which Palestinians can no longer access in order to feed their families.

No reason was given for the seizure or the arrests.
