Large numbers of Israeli police and special forces raided the Salhiyeh home and cordoned off the surrounding area at 3am. Dozens of heavily armed forces broke into their home while they slept and assaulted family members, arresting six of them including the head of the household, Mahmoud Salhiyeh. At least 18 other Palestinians who were present at the home in solidarity with the family were also arrested.
