The Israeli army has imposed a curfew on the village of Azzun which started last Tuesday, August 18th, and is still in effect. Villagers cannot come into or leave the village after 8:30pm which is also about the time that villagers are coming home to eat for the first time in the day due to the fact that the holy month of Ramadan has begun. If residents miss the 8:30pm cut off time, they are unable to make it home for the night. All entrances to Azzun were also closed for two days, making it impossible for any vehicles to come and go. On Monday, Azzun was paritally opened, however the main entrance into the village remains closed. During this time of curfew the Israeli army has also arrested a total of 9 boys and men from Azzun.
