Photos and report by Haim Schwarczenberg: 11 April 2014

Palestinians, accompanied by Israeli and international activists gathered in Martyrs Square at the centre of Nabi Saleh, in order to mark the weekly Friday demonstration against the occupation and land annexation. Demonstrators marched down the street and into the nearby valley, reaching close to al-Qaws spring (expropriated by the settlement of Halamish) when they were attacked by tear gas and stun grenades, hurled by IOF soldiers attempting to disperse the march. No major injuries reported. However, two Palestinian female activists and three journalists were detained at the entrance to the village. While the journalists were eventually released, the Palestinian women were arrested and taken to police interrogation.
