Border Police soldiers and Civil Administration officials demolished a structure that had been constructed without a building permit in the Maginei Aretz outpost near Ein Amasa in Samaria.

During the eviction operation, officers claim dozens protesters set fires, erected barriers to block police vehicles, and attacked security forces involved in demolishing the unauthorized structure.

An unprecedented event during the Border Police's operation occurred when one of the demonstrators sent a dog towards a border police officer present at the scene in order to attack him. The officer was bitten in the leg and evacuated from the field to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah for medical treatment.

After a chase on foot ensued, forces arrested the suspect who released the dog, while another suspect was arrested for assaulting policemen. Two other fighters received medical treatment in the area and did not need medical evacuation.

The forces completed the operation after a short while elapsed, evacuating the structure and dismantling it.
