Israeli soldiers fired live ammunition against nonviolent Palestinian protesters in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on Friday. Two Palestinians were wounded, including activist Manal Tamimi.

Activists report that the army has stepped up its use of live ammunition in the village over the past few months. Nariman Tamimi, a prominent activist in the village’s Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, was shot with live ammunition on November 22, 2014. She is still recovering.

“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.

Report from Popular Struggle Coordination Committee

Local and International protesters participated in the peaceful weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh. The reprisals didn’t made wait. The patients demonstrators suffered again the Israeli violence. The soldiers shot protesters with live bullets, pushing back them. Moreover, threw tear gas bombs leaving tens wounded. But, in spite of this, the demonstration continued shouting for stopping the violence, collective punishment and terror against humanity which Israel practice every day against Palestinians

ISM Report: Live ammunition used at Nabi Saleh demonstration

16th January 2015 | International Solidarity Movement | Nabi Saleh, Occupied Palestine

For five years now, residents of Nabi Saleh have been denied access to their spring. A source of irrigation for their crops, as well as a place for recreation: al-Qaws spring was the heart of this farming community.

The illegal settlement of Halamish was established on the land of Nabi Saleh, and the neighbouring village of Deir Nidham in 1977; since then, and particularly in recent years, the settlement has been growing, stealing more land, and finally denying the villagers access to their spring.

The illegal settlement (photo by ISM).

For five years, every Friday, residents of Nabi Saleh gather with local supporters, Israeli and international activists, to protest against the theft of their land and the denial of access to the spring. Sometimes, with bravery and determination alone, these villagers have managed to reach the spring, stealing a few precious moments before the arrests and reprisals reach their climax.  Most of the time, the repression from the Israeli Occupation Forces is too great to get anywhere close.

Today in Nabi Saleh the villagers gathered at the petrol station on the edge of the village; undeterred by the rain, they were ready for the weekly demonstration. The weekly show of strength and determination to fight for what is rightfully theirs.

We walked down the road, men, women, and children chanting in Arabic and English, voicing our common determination to end this occupation. The Israeli military were waiting at the bottom of the road, blockading the access to the village. As soon as we were in range the tear gas started. A peaceful march met with poisonous tear gas from the very beginning. Many attempted to throw and kick the smoking toxic canisters away, but the sheer quantity meant we had to retreat quickly.

As the smoke cleared, we tried to walk forwards once more. But then the unmistakable crack of live ammunition. We ran back. Without provocation, live ammunition was aimed at a group of peaceful protestors. Fortunately this time the bullet didn’t find a body, but the Israeli Occupation Forces lack of respect for human life is truly frightening.

Two months ago four protestors were injured at this peaceful demonstration, adding to a long list of villagers who have been hurt or killed by Israeli military bullets whilst trying to fight for their rights. The army have been using live ammunition at this group of families and demonstrators more and more frequently during the last year. So the villagers’ weekly demonstration to struggle for their most basic rights – land and water – has been reduced to a short walk to become the target of bullets. Each week villagers risk their lives because they will never accept the theft of their land. Each week they are shot at because they want access to the spring which has been the source of life for their community for generations.
