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.

Text by Haim Schwarczenburg

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.

Video: Sometimes I’m Afraid, Sometimes I Hit – the children of Nabi Saleh speakout

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.

Children’s Day in Nabi Saleh

5th of April 2013 | International Solidarity Movement, Nabi Saleh, Occupied Palestine

On Palestinian Children’s Day, the kids of Nabi Saleh played a leading role in their village demonstration, holding banners and balloons, claiming their rights to a childhood free of oppresion and occupation. However, Israeli forces, as they regularly do, quickly suppressed the demonstration.

As the crowd of protesters were marching along the road with the intention of going to their stolen water spring down the hill, Israeli border police accompanied by a skunk water truck started to shoot the malodorous water and tear gas canisters at the protesters.

Border police officers, located on the main road and on the two hilltops beside it, continued shooting tear gas canisters for approximately an hour, after which they further invaded the village, chasing Palestinian youths down the hills on the other side of Nabi Saleh. A local journalist was severely pushed, pepper sprayed and had stun grenades thrown at him by Israeli border police officers whilst covering the protest.

The demonstration finished at around 3pm when Israeli forces retreated from the village. Then, the children of Nabi Saleh, took over their streets to celebrate their day, claiming their right to a childhood without Israeli occupation.

The village of Nabi Saleh has been demonstrating against the theft of the natural spring and the occupation since December 2009. Israeli forces violently suppress the weekly Friday protests by shooting tear gas canisters, skunk water, sound bombs, rubber coated steel bullets and even live ammunition at protesters. Two people have been killed, Mustafa and Rushdi Tamimi, and many others severly injured. Bassem Tamimi, from Nabi Saleh, has spent 16 months in Israeli jails for the only reason of being a prominent activist at the protests. After more than three year and despite the repression, Nabi Saleh continues to fight against the injustices of a brutal military Israeli occupation.
