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 Friday demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh was a show of solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza, who have been under constant Israeli fire in the past few weeks. Around 1500 Palestinians have been killed in the#Gaza strip so far, about a third of them children. Villagers accompanied by international and Israeli activists marched today from the centre of the village calling for an arms embargo on Israel, justice for the victims and an end to the massacre. The Israeli army responded with barrages of tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and a few rounds of live ammunition. No major injuries reported.

A short film featuring the children of Nabi Saleh speaking about Israel’s occupation and how they cope with the constant state of violence around them, as they see their parents being arrested and family members being killed, and if and when they see some hope in their situation.
The film is made by political activist and Israeli conscientious objector Yuval Auron, who was jailed in 2009 and spent a month and a half in a military prison after refusing to enlist to the army. Yuval has been participating in the demonstrations in Nabi Saleh for the last few years and recently made a short video about the village. Yuval’s film was a finalist in the Euromed Audiovisual competition.
