NABI SALEH, RAMALLAH GOVERNORATE

In solidarity with Palestinian prisoners

After the Friday Prayer, Palestinian, Israeli and international activists marched from the Martyrs’ square, in the center of the village, towards the confiscated land and natural spring near the Israeli illegal settlement of Halamish. Activists chanted slogans calling to the release of Palestinian prisoners and condemning the expansion of Israeli illegal settlements in occupied Palestine.

As the march reached Al shaheed Musatafa Tamimi street, Israeli Forces attempted to suppress the protest by firing tear gas and coated rubber bullets at peaceful demonstrators. Several people suffocated from teargas.

NABI SALEH, RAMALLAH GOVERNORATE

Call to release the Palestinian prisoners and end settler raids in Al Aqsa mosque

After the Friday Prayers, dozens of Palestinian, Israeli and international activists marched towards the confiscated land near the Israeli military watch tower at the entrance of the village, chanting slogans calling for national unity and holding photos of prisoners and of Yasser Arafat. As on most Fridays, the Israeli Forces prevented the march by firing a massive amount of rubber bullets and tear gas canisters leading to many suffocations cases. Clashes broke out; Israeli army invaded the village and targeted houses with their munitions.

The Popular Struggle leaders reminded that national unity is essential to end the occupation and to establish a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as a capital.
