1-Nabi Salah protest 18-06-2010

At today's protest, there was fiery resistance from the village women when Israeli Occupation Forces arrested a young man on the Orwellian accusation that he didn't prevent the shabab from throwing stones at them from his property, the arrest was fiercely resisted with palpable anger and outrage and even when the soldiers had him cocooned in a jeep prior to being carted off to detention and worse, the vehicle was physically prevented from leaving until brutality, percussion grenades and tear gas forced a way.
However, there is a happy outcome to this story as the IOF released him shortly afterwards to the arms of his joyous wife and villagers. Throughtout the West Bank and further afield, this tiny village of some 540 souls is now a symbol of awe and respect as it spearheads the nonviolent resistance to the Occupation and incredibly, all brutal attempts to break this butterfly of courage, this Palestinian Stalingrad on the wheel have been in vain. The latest threat to the village is the recent serving of demolition orders on ten houses adjacent to the illegal "settler" colony of Halamish by the Occupation regime so as to facilitate its cancerous, amoebic spread and eventually do what savage repression can't; break the resistance through ethnic cleansing.

18/06/2010-three citizens were wounded today , and three in solidarity were arrested, and dozens of cases of suffocation as a result of inhalation of tear gas by the clashes in the village of Bil'in , along with peace activists and foreign solidarity after the suppression of the Israeli occupying forces for the weekly march against the wall and settlement.
The village of Bil'in , along with peace activists, Israelis and foreigners in solidarity, participated in the march called by the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Bil'in . The participants in the march raised the Palestinian flags and banners condemning the policy of occupation, settlement, and another condemning the attack on the houses of Jerusalem , and calls to halt its campaign of arrest and release of all prisoners and lift the siege on the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators marched in the village, chanting slogans of national unity and calling for the setting aside differences and confirmed the need to uphold the Palestinian constants and the resistance to the occupation and the release of all prisoners, and chanted slogans condemning the aggression and siege on the Gaza Strip. The protest headed the march towards the wall, where the military force of the Israeli occupation army is to them and behind the concrete blocks behind the wall, after a closed gate in the barrier with barbed wire, and when the demonstrators tried to cross towards the land behind the wall owned by the people of the town, the army fired sound bombs and bullets coated metal bullets and tear gas at them and chase the protesters and even the outskirts of the village. Resulted in injury to three people who are the boy Mohammed Maher Yassin (14 years) bomb gas face, and his brother Jasser Maher Yassin (21 year) bomb gas leg, and Yassin Mohammad Yassin (21 years), and capture of Tal Shapira (25 in), Jal Lukasi ( 22 years) and a British girl was not known her name, and dozens of cases of suffocation, and burning of vast agricultural areas belonging to a large number of people of the village of Bil'in as a result of fire tear gas against demonstrators, and flooded a large village with a barrage of tear gas. The Committee deplored the popular resistance to the wall and settlements in Bil'in, the formation of an Israeli commission of inquiry into crime Fleet Liberty ignoring the international claim in the formation of an international commission of this crime, and calls upon the People's Committee of the international community to exert pressure on their governments to form an international commission of a crime Fleet Liberty. On the other hand , the administration of Ofer Central Prison continued to deprive Abdullah Abu Rahma, coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and settlements to visit his family because of his meeting with Al-Jazeera during the court hearing on 05.05.2010, knowing that Abdullah Abu Rahma was detained in Ofer Central Prison from the date of 10.12.2009, and from that date until now his family and his sons weren’t allowed to visit him in prison.
