The IDF blocked all access roads to the [Palestinian] Shaab El Butum villages in the south of Mt. Hebron with stone blocks and earth mounds. The only road open to the Palestinian residents of the area passes close to the Avigail outpost, which they claim is dangerous for them.

Military Police has recently arrested five fighters of the Haredi Nahal Brigade under suspicions that they had taken souvenir photos of themselves alongside bound Palestinians. Two of the soldiers are also suspected of using drugs.

Eden Abergil, the soldier who had taken photos of herself  alongside bound Palestinians wrote on Facebook that “there are no laws in a war. I’d happily kill Arabs – even slaughter [them]“. According to her “I can’t afford to have Arab-lovers destroy the perfect life I am living. I am not sorry and I have no regrets.”

A report from the Humanitarian Affairs Coordination Office shows that in recent years the Israeli army has expanded access limitations to agricultural land on the Gaza side of the border, as well as to fishing territory along the coast of Gaza Strip.
