HEBRON, WEST BANK -- At night on Thursday, June 12, the Israeli army dug deep holes in all the streets leading into the El-Manara vegetable market in Hebron and amassed huge piles of rubble closing off all roads into the area.

Roadblocks also were plowed onto heavily used streets in other sections of Hebron. The Israeli bulldozers severed water pipes and electrical wires in the process in the densely populated areas.
