Local sources reported that around 3am this morning some 200 soldiers with combat paint in their faces and masks entered the village on foot from several points. A total of five homes were attacked and searched by the soldiers, witnesses reported.

Troops threw sound bombs to disperse the villagers who were coming into the streets at day-break throwing rocks at the invading forces. The operation ended around seven in the morning, all those kidnapped were taken to military detention camp.

Among those kidnapped was 35 year-old Mohammed Al Khatib, a member of the local popular committee against the wall.

Since four years ago, the village of Bil'in has been the scene of weekly nonviolent resistance against the Israeli illegal wall built on the villagers' lands. The villages won a court decision that the wall should be removed but the military refuse to comply with the court orders.
