Israeli soldiers raid Nabi Saleh after midnight, ransack homes, terrorize residents

Israeli soldiers have raided Nabi Saleh village literally every night of the last week. It has become a common occurance of Israeli soldiers raiding West Bank villages after 1:00 AM to terrorize the villagers and its children. For years, Nabi Saleh, in the occupied West Bank, has been a focus of nonviolent weekly demonstrations against Israeli land confiscations to expand nearby settlements.

This specific Nabi Saleh raid took place around 2:00 AM last night, you can see in the video soldiers stealing electronics, computers, and original documents without showing the residents any kind of warrant. This action is illegal by all means; Israeli occupation soldiers act as if they have the right to break into houses, wake up the residents, mess up their storage places, and steal whatever they want. Only a few kilometres away in Israeli cities, if a police officer entered an Israeli family’s house without a warrant, the police officer would face severe consequences. Why is it acceptable for Israel to carry out these routine abuses against Palestinians?
