Home Front Command soldiers were passing water to the right-wing protesters in the concrete bunker of a Hebron house on Tuesday morning, as the IDF continued to try to breach the structure and evacuate the squatters. Those inside the bunker, who have been breathing through pipes that protrude from the shelter, refused to take the water. Police, rescue experts and medical teams expressed growing concern as to the well-being of the three protesters holed up inside the bunker. As the tempereature rises, the three may be in danger of dehydration and could run out of air. The bunker, constructed of concrete and reinforced wood, is approximately four feet tall and located in the entry room of the second of the three houses.
