In the West Bank, the IDF patrols in Kafr Haris village nr. Salfit during the afternoon and imposes a curfew in the evening, allowing at least 1,000 Jewish settlers to enter the village to hold religious ceremonies until the morning of 6/12; the Jewish settlers spray paint Palestinian homes, break windows, vandalize cars. The IDF also forces a Palestinian family to demolish an addition to their East Jerusalem home, threatening them with a $5,000 fine if the IDF were to implement the demolition order. (OCHA, PCHR 6/18)
