AT LEAST FIVE ARRESTED TO DATE
(The latest information I have is that almost everyone is detained, not yet arrested. As far as I know there are three people arrested, and supposedly accused at assaulting a police officer or a soldier, I am not clear on that yet. The three people are Nazeeh Shalabee (Palestinian) Ariel Tajar (Israeli) and an Italian activist named lorenza who's surname I don't know right now. It also seems as if the police will try and single out some people as organizers.)
At approximately 7am this morning, Palestinian, Israeli, and international human rights activists were detained while attempting to block the demolition of part of a Palestinian family’s home, near the village of Mas'ha. The building that had been slated for demolition by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) - because it lay
in the path of Israel’s controversial Separation Wall – is now being destroyed.
