Local sources have reported that dozens of soldiers invaded the village on Thursday evening, and that dozens of Palestinians have been treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation, while several children suffered anxiety attacks.

The invasion caused property damage to at least three homes that were hit by gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets.

Clashes took place between the invading soldiers and local youth who hurled stones and empty bottles at them.

The soldiers, blocking the main entrance of the village, also prevented the residents from entering or leaving it.

The Popular Resistance Committee in the village said that the invasion is part of an assault that was initiated by the army ten days ago, and part of Israel’s ongoing violations and attempts to end the ongoing popular resistance against the Annexation Wall and illegal settlements.

The Committee added that the Israeli violations include nightly invasions and arrests of local activists and residents, and that the army is deliberately targeting local homes with live ammunition, in addition to its ongoing attacks against the Palestinian orchards, isolated behind the Wall.

Nabi Saleh Stands Strong in the Face of Nightly Raids

By Dylan Collins Palestine Monitor: March 24, 2012

Friday 23 March 2012–The tiny village of Nabi Saleh once again assembled together to hold another of its weekly nonviolent protests against the neighboring illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish, as well as Israel’s occupation at large. Friday’s demonstration was held in dedication to imprisoned village resident, Bassem Tamimi, who arrested exactly a year ago for organizing what Israeli authorities have deemed to be illegal demonstrations in Nabi Saleh, as well as Palestinian hunger striker Hana Shalabi on her 37th day without food in protest of Israel’s policy of administrative detention.

During the protest, Nabi Saleh resident Izz al-Abdul Hazfith Tamimi, age 15, was injured after being shot in the face by one of the Israeli Occupation Force’s rubber coated steel bullets. Usama Bilal Tamimi, age 16, was also injured after being struck by a rubber bullet in the leg.

Shortly after the demonstration began, a group of mainly female protesters split from the main demo and descended down a neighboring hill towards Nabi Saleh’s Al-Kaws spring, appropriated by Israel’s Halamish settlement in late 2009. In a feat that has not been achieved in months, protesters made it all the way to the main road along side the spring. Nine Israeli army jeeps intercepted the group of approximately 15 protesters, declaring the area to be a closed military area and threatening them multiple times with immediate arrest despite the fact that they were still located on Nabi Saleh territory.

Yesterday’s demonstration was held on the heels of what has been a rather sleepless past couple of weeks for village of Nabi Saleh its 550 residents. Israeli Occupation Forces have conducted nightly raids on the village almost every night over the past two weeks, searching homes and confiscating computers, cellphones, and personal documents.

Bilal Tamimi, a Nabi Saleh resident, captured the Israeli army’s Tuesday night raid of Bassem Tamimi’s home on film (see below).

Ma’an News Agency reported locals to have said that the soldiers have threatened to raid the village every night until the cease their campaign of popular resistance and weekly protests.
