Unknown individuals vandalized an agricultural field near the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh, destroying a quarter of its crops. Israeli/settler right-wing website “HaKol Hayehudi” claimed that this could be a “Price Tag” action in response to Palestinians blockading a nearby road with rocks.

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.
