Report by International Solidarity Movement: On Friday, October 2nd, the village of Nabi Saleh held their weekly Friday demonstration protesting the illegal expropriation of their village land by the illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish.
The last demonstration marched towards the village’s spring al-Qaws, which was expropriated by the settlement 2009. Israeli forces supported and protected this illegal theft of the village’s water source. Since then Palestinian villagers are not allowed to use or access their spring anymore.
Even though the Israeli supreme court in 2013 ruled to halt any further work on the well by Israeli settlers, Palestinians are still forcibly prevented from using it.
Last Friday, settlers marched to the well accompanied by Israeli forces, showing off their power. The Palestinian owners of the well were forced to watch this march from the other side of the hill, illustrating the sheer injustice that is Palestinian’s every day life.
