Morag residents barricaded themselves inside their homes, while others set trash bins on fire as soldiers entered their community. After receiving threats of sniper attacks from nearby Palestinian villages, police asked settlers on rooftops to come down. Commanders have instructed the army to take extra precaution boarding women with babies on the buses. Men tore their clothes as a sign of mourning. Soldiers and police removed settlers from the synagogues who had gathered to recite Psalms and pray until they were loaded on buses. Over 1,200 illegal protesters have entered Kfar Darom and are prepared to block soldiers and police in any way they can. The few remaining families in other settlements plan to resist at all costs.
