In Safa village Israeli troops occupied three homes and declared them military posts. Several bulldozers blocked off entrances to the village, cutting it off totally from its lands and neighboring villages as the Israeli manhunt for the “axe attacker” continues.

Safa residents have lived under curfew for 24 hours as troops patrol the streets and raid homes. The residences of Ahmad Ismael Kokas, Ghazi Ahmad Ady, and Isam Ibrahim Ady have been taken over and at least six others suffered damage as troops burst through doors or smashed windows. Villagers say at least 28 have been detained and are being held in an unknown location.
