Israeli forces have brutally suppressed today’s protest in Nabi Saleh as they fired large quantities of teargas leading to the suffocation of tens of protesters including children and women in the protest.
The protesters chanted for loving Palestine and against the Israeli brutal occupation and its refusal to any forms of justice and peace.
Israeli forces have also fired rubber coated bullets at the peaceful protesters and declared the area a closed military zone.
The protesters who wanted to reach the land threatened by confiscation were not allowed to reach the area and were met with teargas. Clashes between the youth and Israeli forces erupted and lasted for hours.
The protesters have also protested the blocking of the entrance to Nabi Saleh with a large metal gate set up by Israeli forces and the Israeli destruction of a tent set up by the villagers next to their land.

The Israeli occupation forces attacked today the weekly anti settlement and occupation march in Nabi Saleh. The march launched from Martyrs Square in the center of the village went towards the house of the martyrs of popular resistance in the village, Rushdie and Mustafa Tamimi, to deliver at their parents commemorative plates in honor of their sacrifices. Then, the march went to the village’s lands threatened by the occupation forces that attacked the march with massive launch of tear gas canister and rubber bullets, causing dozens cases of asphyxia.

The weekly Friday demonstration against Israeli occupation and land theft commemorated former PLO leader Yasser Arafat, whose remained were exhumed and analyzed. Autopsy results published this week indicated chairman Arafat died of unnatural causes, presumably polonium poisoning. Villagers held photos of the former chairman to protest his assassination. The villagers were joined by Israeli and international solidarity activists. As demonstrators proceeded down a street towards the locked gate near the military watch tower, IOF soldiers dispersed the march with tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets.
Through the eyes of a Palestinian child, members of Jenin’s Freedom Theatre perform the story of popular struggle in Nabi Saleh.
On Saturday, May 4, 2013, members of “The Freedom Theatre” performed a play based on stories and testimonies from children of the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. The play tells the story of the village’s resistance, through the eyes of a young Palestinian child. The first show was performed in the village’s cultural center. The performance was dedicated to Mustafa and Rushdi Tamimi, two Palestinians from Nabi Saleh who were shot to death by Israeli soldiers during demonstrations against the occupation.
