Day 4: Update and Photo round up from Ein Hijleh

Dear friends,
on Day 4 in Ein Hijleh, activists continued to refurbish the village.  Palestinians from across the West Bank have continued to stand in solidarity with Ein Hijleh, bringing food and water.  Solidarity visits have been reported from Jericho, Nablus, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, Nabi Saleh, Bilin and many more towns from across the West Bank.   During the day, the IOF briefly detained a German man after he brought water to the village.  Palestinians staged a protest and successful gained his release.  The IOF briefly entered the village, activist suggest that it was primarily to assess how many people were in Ein Hijleh.
