Friday’s demonstration in Nabi Saleh against Israel’s occupation called for freedom for all Palestinian political prisoners in Israel’s jails. In particular, the demonstration sought to highlight Israel’s imprisonment of Palestinian children and the violation of their human rights.

Israeli Occupation Forces sealed the village, closing the metal gates at the front of the village which are part of the Occupation infrastucture and then fired barrages of teargas at the non-violent demonstration, resulting in tens of people suffering from teargas inhalation and suffocation.

Joined by international and Israeli activists, the people of Nabi Saleh  attempted to march to the front of the village, chanting slogans clalling for an end to Israel’s occuaption and for the protection of Palestinian and the implementation of international law.  The Israeli military open fired on the peaceful demonstrators with steel coated rubber bullets and teargas.

Women from the village in an attempt to prevent Israeli snipers firing on Palestinian residents attempted to block them by standing in front of them.

“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.”

 

Teen hurt as Israeli forces suppress West Bank demos

Maan News: 30/01/2015
(MaanImages)
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.
