According to activists on the ground in Nabi Saleh more than 300+ teargas canisters were fired by the Israeli Occupation Forces within the first 5 minutes of its attack on today’s regular Friday demonstration by the village against Israel’s military occupation.
Israeli Occupation Forces arrested Nariman Tamimi and Rana Nazzal, along with Spanish International activist. All three were transferred to the illegal colony of Halamish by the IOF. After several hours the international activist was released but banned from entering Nabi Saleh for 15 days.
