“The weekly protest in Nabi Saleh followed a week of IDF raids in the village and arrests of residents, as well as what seems like the introduction of a new weapon that contains an unknown organge-colored chemical. Villagers and solidarity activists marched with the Palestinian and Egyptian flags to protest against arbitrary arrests of civilians. The IDF responded with barrages of tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and rounds of live ammunition (“tutu”) in order to disperse demonstrators. No major injuries reported.”

“Protesting the systematic detention of children and minors by the IDF, residents of Nabi Saleh and solidarity activists marched today, demonstrating against the recent prison sentence given to 14 years old Malak al-Khatib. Malak was accused of stone throwing, and was pressured into signing a plea deal which handed her a two-months prison term and 6000NIS fine. She is currently held in Hasharon prison, with other female Palestinian political prisoners. The IDF attempted to disperse the marchers by using tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and live ammunition (“tutu”). One child was injured from a live bullet and was taken to Salfit for medical treatment.”

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Israeli forces suppressed weekly protests near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on Friday, injuring a child, a Ma’an reporter said.

In Nabi Saleh, a 15-year-old Palestinian boy was injured in the thigh with a live bullet fired by Israeli soldiers.

The boy, Muhammad Bilal al-Tamimi, was taken to the Palestine Medical Center in Ramallah.

This week’s march in Nabi Saleh was a protest of Israeli violations against Palestinian children. Protesters held signs against the Israeli occupation and demanding protection for Palestinian minors.

Demonstrators also carried pictures of Malak al-Khatib, a 14-year-old girl currently being held in Israeli custody.

Israeli soldiers fired tear-gas grenades and rubber-coated bullets at protesters. Clashes broke out after protesters refused to stop marching.

Meanwhile, in Bilin, a Palestinian was hit directly with a tear gas canister.

Several others suffered tear gas inhalation as Israeli forces suppressed a march made up of Palestinians from the village in addition to international and Israeli activists.

The protesters were calling for an end to Israeli aggression against Palestinian children.

Israeli forces detained local popular committee member Muhammad al-Khatib for a few hours before releasing him.

Nonviolent protests are held each Friday in villages across the West Bank in protest of the Israeli occupation, Israeli settlements, and the separation wall.
