The weekly Friday demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh was a show of solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza, who have been under constant Israeli fire in the past few weeks. Around 1500 Palestinians have been killed in the#Gaza strip so far, about a third of them children. Villagers accompanied by international and Israeli activists marched today from the centre of the village calling for an arms embargo on Israel, justice for the victims and an end to the massacre. The Israeli army responded with barrages of tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and a few rounds of live ammunition. No major injuries reported.

Video: Sometimes I’m Afraid, Sometimes I Hit – the children of Nabi Saleh speakout

A short film featuring the children of Nabi Saleh speaking about Israel’s occupation and how they cope with the constant state of violence around them, as they see their parents being arrested and family members being killed, and if and when they see some hope in their situation.

The film is made by political activist and Israeli conscientious objector Yuval Auron, who was jailed in 2009 and spent a month and a half in a military prison after refusing to enlist to the army. Yuval has been participating in the demonstrations in Nabi Saleh for the last few years and recently made a short video about the village. Yuval’s film was a finalist in the Euromed Audiovisual competition.

Children’s Day in Nabi Saleh

5th of April 2013 | International Solidarity Movement, Nabi Saleh, Occupied Palestine

On Palestinian Children’s Day, the kids of Nabi Saleh played a leading role in their village demonstration, holding banners and balloons, claiming their rights to a childhood free of oppresion and occupation. However, Israeli forces, as they regularly do, quickly suppressed the demonstration.

As the crowd of protesters were marching along the road with the intention of going to their stolen water spring down the hill, Israeli border police accompanied by a skunk water truck started to shoot the malodorous water and tear gas canisters at the protesters.

Border police officers, located on the main road and on the two hilltops beside it, continued shooting tear gas canisters for approximately an hour, after which they further invaded the village, chasing Palestinian youths down the hills on the other side of Nabi Saleh. A local journalist was severely pushed, pepper sprayed and had stun grenades thrown at him by Israeli border police officers whilst covering the protest.

The demonstration finished at around 3pm when Israeli forces retreated from the village. Then, the children of Nabi Saleh, took over their streets to celebrate their day, claiming their right to a childhood without Israeli occupation.

The village of Nabi Saleh has been demonstrating against the theft of the natural spring and the occupation since December 2009. Israeli forces violently suppress the weekly Friday protests by shooting tear gas canisters, skunk water, sound bombs, rubber coated steel bullets and even live ammunition at protesters. Two people have been killed, Mustafa and Rushdi Tamimi, and many others severly injured. Bassem Tamimi, from Nabi Saleh, has spent 16 months in Israeli jails for the only reason of being a prominent activist at the protests. After more than three year and despite the repression, Nabi Saleh continues to fight against the injustices of a brutal military Israeli occupation.

Video: Soldiers attack children in Nabi Saleh and arrest Nariman Tamimi

by Popular Struggle Coordination Committee: 26 August 2012

During the weekly demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh, yesterday, Friday, dedicated to support the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, some of the villagers of Nabi Saleh, along with other activists managed to get to the entrance of village’s spring “Alqaws” which was taken over by the settlers three years ago. Soldiers forcibly prevented them to approach the spring at the same time settlers were swimming in.

Soldiers detained three Palestinian women, one Israeli activist and one American journalist. Among the detainees was Nariman Tamimi (36), a resident of the village and a Popular Resistance activist. Her Daughter, A’hd Tamimi (11) and two nephews, Marah (11) and Wiaam (11), were attacked brutally by soldiers preventing them from reaching the spring, and separating them from Nariman during her detention. [CORRECTION to PSCC report – Marah is the neice of Nariman].

After the arrests, the army raided the village, sprayed “skunk” water and threw stun grenades and tear gas at houses, and used live ammunition through the clashes with the residents. During the raids on the houses, several residents were injured, including: Azmi Tamimi (70), injured in his finger from a rubber bullet shot from point blank range, Martyr Mustafa Tamimi’s grandmother (90), injured in her leg from two rubber bullets, as she sat at her house door, Halla Tamimi (48), injured from a stun grenade thrown into her house and Ahmed Shaker (11), injured in his chin from rubber-coated steel bullet, in addition to several injuries from rubber-coated steel bullets.

During the raid, the army arrested another Israeli activist from one of the houses. The six detainees were held for more than eight hours, in violation of the law, which only permits holding detainees for a maximum of three hours (or six hours in extreme cases), before they are arrested. At 9pm, soldiers put detainees on an army vehicle and drove them for an hour though different settlements roads then drove back to Nabi Saleh entrance where they were dropped off and released.

16 year-old Anan Tamimi from Nabi Saleh was arrested by Israeli soldiers on his way to school this morning, for the 3rd time in recent weeks

by Manal Tamimi, 02 April 2012

The Zionist IDF arrested the child Anan Naji Tamimi for the third time during the last forty days. Anan was arrested last month form his home at 3am in the morning , his charges was participating illegal protest and throwing stones according to a picture one of the soldiers took during the protest for one of the children while he threw stones.

The lawyer has proved that the pictures that they had is not of Anan and they released him after paying 500 dollars guarantee. The general attorney threaten him that he will arrest him again .

After one month, they arrested him again from his house at 2am in the morning , investigate him for 2 hours, beat him and show him the same picture they show the first time. Anan insisted that this pictre is not his and thats why he was realsed the first time.  At 4am in the morning hand cuffed , blind folded the Zionist army released him after they threw him in an empty area and told him to go home alone. He struggled till he could remove the fold from his eyes and walk about half mile on a settler’s street alone. He said that he was very afraid that one of the settlers could see him and maybe they will beat him to death, he reached his home shaking from cold and fear, his hands were swollen from the tight hand cuffed.

This morning after one week of this incident, they [the Israeli military] arrested him for the third time on his way to school, according to the same picture.  Anan is now in Ofer prison and tomorrow he has a hearing for the same cherges (participating illegal protest and throwing stones, as they said they have evidence which is the same picture that the judge refused in the first time because it was obvious that the person in the picture is not Anan ).

This is one story of what our children have to face and how much they have to suffer from this Zionist occupation .

*editor’s note: Anan is the eldest son of Nabi Saleh leader, Naji Tamimi, who was recently released from Israeli prison after spending one year as a political prisoner for his non-violent activism against Israel’s occupation.  Naji was arrested and jailed by Israel’s occupation military courts for organising and participating in non-violent demonstrations against the Occupation.
