At around 2:30 am early on Sunday morning, 500 Israeli security forces converged on the newly erected tent village of Bab al Shams and forcibly evicted the over 100 Palestinian activists who were staying there. Erected on Thursday, January 10th, Bab al Shams is located in the E1 territory which the Israeli government plans on constructing new Jewish only settlement units. Such a move would have severed the West Bank from Jerusalem, making the idea of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders impossible.

A number of Palestinians suffered from minor injuries, and a few were detained only to be released shortly after.
