During the raid, dozens of Yatta village students were there. Masked, armed soldiers terrified them. Villagers weren't told what's at stake.

Days earlier, similar operations were conducted in two other villages. Tuba and Magher al-Abeed residents were mistreated.

In response to Jinba's raid, Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) lawyer, Tamar Feldman, said Israel's 2000 High Court decision let them continue village life unobstructed. In early August, that changed.

Attorney Shlomo Lecker called raiding Jinba a "heavy-handed violation of the injunction issued by Supreme Court President Aharon Barak in 2000." Israel violates international law, its own, and High Court rulings repeatedly.

At the time, an IDF spokesman said details on its operations aren't provided.

One resident spoke for others, saying: "Farming is in our soul and in our blood. If they take this away, we will be destroyed." It's happening to hundreds of Palestinians in eight to 12 villages.

On August 20, Haaretz columnist Amira Hass headlined "A proper Zionist live fire zone," saying:

Israel's army and Civil Administration have been "impos(ing) their authority as the supreme sovereign"." Closed military zone orders deny Palestinians their legal rights.
