Mu’ath Mash’al, a Palestinian journalist, sustained an injury from a rubber bullet aimed directly at him. He received emergency treatment in the field and was then taken to a Ramallah hospital.

An IOF commander instructs soldiers to aim and shoot directly at a group of journalists even though their flak vests clearly identified them as members of the press.

Mariam Barghouti released on 18 April, after being arrested in Nabi Saleh the week before

by the International Solidarity  Movement: 18 April 2014

15th April 2014 | International Solidarity Movement | Occupied Palestine

Update Friday 18th April:

Mariam was released yesterday evening and is now home with her family.

*****

Update Thursday 17th April:

Mariam had a military court hearing this morning and the military judge agreed to release her on bail. Mariam’s bail has been paid and she is expected to be released later this evening.

*****

Update Wednesday 16th April:

At Mariam’s military court hearing today, an Israeli military judge stated that he “has doubts if the evidence supports the prosecution charges” and agreed to her release on bail. Nonetheless, he ruled that Mariam should remain in military detention until tomorrow morning, April 17th, at 11:00, so that the military prosecution has a chance to appeal his decision.

*****

On Friday, April 11th, 2014, 20-year-old Mariam Barghouti, a university student at Birzeit, was arrested by Israeli forces. She was brought to court on Sunday, April 13th where she was charged and her detention extended until Wednesday, April 16th.

Mariam was arrested while leaving the village of Nabi Saleh. Mariam, along with Abir Kopty (a Palestinian with Israeli citizenship who was later released on bail), and three foreign journalists were detained by soldiers and searched. Mariam had been in Nabi Saleh accompanying some of the journalists on their assignments and translating for them. Soldiers on the scene fabricated charges against her and handed her over to the police who arrested her along with Abir. At her hearing yesterday Mariam was charged with stone-throwing and entering a closed military area; her detention has been extended until Wednesday. Mariam sobbed throughout the whole hearing and told her lawyer that the charges are simply lies.

Mariam is a student at Birzeit University where she is majoring in English Literature and Psychology. Mariam is also active in community work and organizing and received a two-month residency scholarship in the UK, part of a program supporting women.

Abir said that during the arrest incident on Friday, “one of the soldiers who detained us looked at me and with a big smile said, ‘I’m going to mess up your life.’ It was obvious to me then that not only will he fabricate everything for his own purposes, but he knows he has the power to do so.”

Tamimi Press: Breaking the siege of Nabi Saleh

Tamimi Press: 15 April 2014

After a great popular demonstration with the support of our brothers and sisters – Palestinian, Israelis and Internationals – we succeded to re-open the gate at the entrance of the village and to end the siege of Nabi Saleh after three days of blockade. Also the West Gate of the village now is open after about 12 years. We had to physically fight and resist against the most arrogant army in the world. The IOF today beated us and shot bombs against us, as well as tear gas, rubber coated bullets and pepper spray. An excessive reaction considering that we were demonstrating in a non violent popular way. Murad Tamimi, taken during the protest, is still under detention.

Today, amongst our demands there was also the freedom of movement for all Palestinian and the end of the check point, walls and gate system that is dividing the West Bank and the Palestinians.


We demand the release of Murad Tamimi and of Mariam Barghouti – arrested in Nabi Saleh friday – immediatly.
