In the immediate aftermath of the demonstration, five army jeeps made an incursion into village lands and occupation soldiers arrested Ashraf Abu Rahmah when he peacefully remonstrated with them - two of these jeeps peeled off to invade the village for a short period. Ashraf is currently detained in Israel's Ofer prison near Ramallah on, no doubt, trumped-up charges.
