As every Friday, Palestinians from Nabi Saleh together with International and Israeli supporters protested against the occupation and spoliation of their lands and spring by the nearby settlement. Also as every week, they faced attacks by the Israeli army who uses this week: tear gas (many shot at head levels and at houses); rubber-coated metal bullets; skunk (foul-smelling chemical liquid); and live ammunition. The village was totally closed down from morning to late afternoon. A miracle with all that was shot today that nobody got seriously injured or killed.
Activist in Nabi Saleh are reporting that in addition to firing tear gas (between houses in the village) and rubber coated steel bullets, the IOF has just also started firing a large barrage of live ammunition.
During the weekly Friday demonstration in Nabi Saleh, dozens of Palestinians, international and Israeli activists marched together to protest the occupation and continuing land garb by settlers. The Israeli army deployed in large forces on the road leading to the main entrance to the village and on the mountain top, using skunk water, tear gas, rubber coated steel bullets and several rounds of live ammunition to disperse protesters.
