(en) Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle in the middle of the hot Summer and the Ramadan*
Mon, 30 Jul 2012 09:32:41 +0300
On the background of the Israeli war mongering focused on the Iranian nuclear initiative,
Israel intensify it steps for hose demolition and transfer of Palestinians from area C
which is 60% of the occupied west bank. The Palestinians persist in the Tsumud mode of
resistance. Israeli and international activists join whenever they can - mainly in the
region of the South of Hebron hills and the Jordan river. Israeli state forces increase
their efforts to exclude the internationals but limited by world PR. In spite of the war
mongering, the world economic recession, and the hot whether, the social struggle continue
in the main cities. The focus of repression of the joint struggle against the occupation
and settler colonialist encroaching lands near settlements was a day after day invasion
and harassment in the heroic Nabi Saleh village.
Friday early afternoon, the persistent joint struggle demonstration, west lands of the
village, we marched and chanted. 10 Israelis, about 20 internationals, and about two dozen
Bil'iners participated in a hot Summer, protesting the robbery of the lands of the village
for the building of the settler colonialist town Modi'in Elit. When we approached the
separation wall the Israeli state forces started their usual shooting of tear gas
canisters reinforced with noise and tear gas grenades and spray of stinking water.
As the wind was friendly the more experienced participants and the more daring new comers
succeeded to evade the tear gas again and again and we continued the confrontation for
about an hour. Part of the local shabab retaliated the state forces with stones and forced
them to hide behind the wall
In the early afternoon hours of the second Friday of the Ramadan, some several dozen
protesters gathered in Bil'in for the weekly demonstration against the Wall and
settlements. The protesters – Bil'iners, Israeli activists and international supporters -
made their way towards the separation wall where the army was already based. Upon reaching
Abu Lamon grove near the Western stretch of the Wall, protesters were met by volleys of
tear-gas canisters, as well as shock grenades and the "skunk" – a water cannon spraying
foul-smelling liquid. Since the wind was blowing in the direction of the soldiers,
protesters were able to make their way to the Wall and cross the first fence surrounding
it. After some clashes the demonstration dispersed. No arrests or injuries were reported.

Meanwhile on Friday, in southern West Bank, several residents were also treated for the
effects of tear gas inhalation when Israeli soldiers attacked the villagers of Al Ma’sara
as they organized their weekly anti wall and settlements protest which called this week
for boycotting Israeli products.
Residents and international supporters marched near the construction site of the wall and
were faced with tear gas fired by Israeli troops operating in the area.
Thursday Live bullets and a lot of tear gas shot now in the village during a clashes
between al shabab and IOF
Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly protest at Al-Nabi Saleh village near
Ramallah wounding four people including a 9-year old child.
The villagers marched after the midday prayers towards the confiscated lands, however,
Israeli troops stopped them by firing several rounds of rubber-coated steel bullets and a
number of tear gas canisters. Nine-year old Mohammad Tamimi was hit in his arm with a tear
gas canister and was moved to the hospital for treatment.
Three others were wounded with rubber-coated steel bullets however, their wounds were
described as minor.

Saturday, Army raiding #NabiSaleh now, as they've done every day in past week. Soldiers
are shooting live ammo at local youth who throw stones at them
Despite the hot weather, demonstration took place in the neighboring village of Ni'ilin,
where a few dozen protesters marched towards the concrete Wall built on the village's
olive groves. The army shot tear-gas and used the skunk to disperse the crowd. A young man
wounded by a bullet. Picture of confrontations today:
"The legend of the village Qaddum. It is an open secret that I love the village. So what
did we have?
Seven Israelis and a number of international joined two hundred Palestinians in the
This week we demonstrated in a scorching sun and terrible heat, against the closing of the
road and land theft.
The demonstration started in a procession accompanied by music as the inhabitants refuse
to be suppressed and depressed.
The army in its turn shot a really huge amount of tear gas. And the Shabab that do not
give in responded in intense fight beck: burning tires and slingshots were there aplenty.
Unfortunately spray of skunk water was aplenty too.
The army moved slowly into the village and in the surrounding mountains on the left and
continued to shoot more and more tear gas.
They filled the village with clouds of smoke and tear gas.
Some who suffocated by tear gas inhalation received treatment there.
After the demonstration were invited to personally visit the mourners of 14 year-old boy
who was killed in a car accident.
Of course we attended it as our presence was important to them.
On a personal note, even if it took time till us Israelis we were admitted as partners,
today is not the case and we are already welcome and blessed.
And no one should be mistaken about it."
