25/08/14: Israeli Army looting and ransacking in Burin

In the early hours of Monday morning the Israeli Army invaded the village of Burin and ransacked several homes in Burin. This is the second time the Army has ransacked the homes of the village youth in the last week, attempting to intimidate villagers into submission. At the time of writing Burin is still deemed a closed military zone and the Army are preventing exit and entry to the village.

After pulling out and destroying property within several homes the soldiers did not give any indication as to the reasons for today’s harassment, only stating that they would “come everyday”. One youth was detained for over an hour before he was released with no explanation. They also erected checkpoints at the entrances to the village.

On 20 August the Israeli Army invaded the village ransacked 15 homes, again threatening the youth and their families. Burin is subject to constant harassment by the Israeli Army and the illegal colonies of Yitzhar and Bracha that surround the village and are built on stolen village lands. On Saturday the youth of the village launched a campaign to retake land and plant it with grapes near the illegal colonies.
