Report in Corona days

Today, Doha sent photos and videos of what happened yesterday. Doha was in her own field which is next to Huwwara; she, her husband and son, when the soldiers arrived and asked them what they were doing there.  They answered that they had come to spray the weeds and clean the area.  The soldiers asked for their identificaiton cards and, when they gave them, they asked them to throw them on the ground and they did not touch them.  Doha was not silent, but said to them that they were afraid of the Corona virus while they (the Palestinians) do not have it but that they should go to Itzhar and Har Bracha where there is Corona!  The soldiers told them to leave and go home.

They didn't agree and said we are on our own land and are not bothering anyone.  The soldiers hung around for a while in the area.  Afterward, they said to them we will come back very soon and force you to leave if you haven't yet.  But they continued to work and the soldiers left and did not return.
