BIL’IN: Army bans Israeli and international activists 15Mar10 March 18, 2010

صورة 00715-3-2010-At 2 AM on this night, Bil’in was once again raided by the Israeli Army. A document was posted around the whole village of Bil’in.  This document declared that Israeli and international activists were strictly prohibited from entering Bil’in between the hours of 8 am and 8 pm on every Friday, the day in which the weekly demonstration takes place.  Every Israeli and international activist must leave the village during this time, or else he or she will be deported or arrested by Israeli soldiers.  The head of the police, Benjamin, ordered that this action be taken.  The permit declares Bil’in to be a closed military area until August 17th.  This is an attempt to stop Israeli and international activists from supporting the popular struggle of Bil’in, and is therefore just another action to repress and destroy the village’s resistance against the occupation and also against the annexation of it’s land.

Also, earlier in the day, Iyad Burnat, the head of the Popular Committee, received a phone call by the ‘shabak.’  He was ordered to report to an office tomorrow for questioning.
