Not only, during the operation, the attacking force confiscated two vehicles. Reportedly, one car belongs to the Colonization and Wall Resistance Commission and the other one belongs to Palestine T.V.

It should be also indicated the Israeli Occupation Authorities have previously declared Humsa al-Fauqa hamlet a “closed military area”. This entails having the area evicted of residents and properties.
