(en) Palestin-Israel, Civil disobedience in Izbet Tabib Qalqiliya region. Saturday July 15

Date Sat, 15 Jul 2006 19:13:55 +0300

Izbet Tabib is a small village of 300 inhabitants near Qalqiliya. It was established in 1920
and in 1948 it received an influx of refugees from Tubsur, which stood where Israeli Raanana
town is now. It is not recognized at all by the Israeli government which has issued demolition
orders for most of the buildings in the village. This small village has been assaulted by the
Israeli lately, the main exit from the village was blocked by an earth mound preventing cars
from passing it. The villagers contacted the Israeli Anarchist Against The Wall initiative, and
an action was decided on - joined by the others of the coalition against the fence. We carried
it out to day. About 40 Israelis, 20 internationals and many of the village people assembled in
the center of the village. After a long meeting and speeches, we marched to the near by
blocked road and started to dismantle the block. After hours of efforts two cars passed it.

During the meeting, the march and the dismantling the road block stone thrower youth
showered the Israeli forces with stones. Some of the cases the armored cars just passed
by disregarding the stones, Some of the cases the state forces responded with shock
grenades and firing in the air with their guns.

After the two cars succeeded to cross the partly dismantled road block we returned
to the village - where we were hosted again for a while waiting to see if the army
will harass the village as punishment for the direct action. After about a quite
hour the internationals and the Israelis left the village - leaving behind a small
group of volunteers for the night.

On the way home we were informed that an army bulldozer blocked again the road we
had opened. Few hours later, the Israeli forces blocked even the passage of
villagers by foot.
