Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday evening, the village of Bil’in, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and stormed the home of an elderly couple, before summoning one of them for interrogation.
Cameraman Haitham Khatib, who filmed the invasion, said on his Facebook page that the elderly couple are 65 and 70 years old, and that their home is close to the Annexation Wall, built on Palestinian lands.
Khatib added that the soldiers, and border police officers, only summoned the elderly woman for interrogation at the Ofer Prison.
He also stated that this latest attack is very troubling, as the Israeli army now seems to be trying to intimidate and imprison elderly Palestinians in the village, in an attempt to stop the ongoing weekly popular nonviolent protests, against the Annexation Wall and colonies, in participation with dozens of Israeli and international peace activists.
Bil’in has been a leading village in the ongoing, popular, nonviolent struggle against the Annexation Wall, and has been a frequent target of invasions and assaults by the Israeli army, while dozens of its nonviolent activists have been kidnapped and imprisoned. Several Palestinian activists have also been killed by the army.
