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.

During the weekly demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh, yesterday, Friday, dedicated to support the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, some of the villagers of Nabi Saleh, along with other activists managed to get to the entrance of village’s spring “Alqaws” which was taken over by the settlers three years ago. Soldiers forcibly prevented them to approach the spring at the same time settlers were swimming in.

Soldiers detained three Palestinian women, one Israeli activist and one American journalist. Among the detainees was Nariman Tamimi (36), a resident of the village and a Popular Resistance activist. Her Daughter, A’hd Tamimi (11) and two nephews, Marah (11) and Wiaam (11), were attacked brutally by soldiers preventing them from reaching the spring, and separating them from Nariman during her detention. [CORRECTION to PSCC report – Marah is the neice of Nariman].
After the arrests, the army raided the village, sprayed “skunk” water and threw stun grenades and tear gas at houses, and used live ammunition through the clashes with the residents. During the raids on the houses, several residents were injured, including: Azmi Tamimi (70), injured in his finger from a rubber bullet shot from point blank range, Martyr Mustafa Tamimi’s grandmother (90), injured in her leg from two rubber bullets, as she sat at her house door, Halla Tamimi (48), injured from a stun grenade thrown into her house and Ahmed Shaker (11), injured in his chin from rubber-coated steel bullet, in addition to several injuries from rubber-coated steel bullets.
During the raid, the army arrested another Israeli activist from one of the houses. The six detainees were held for more than eight hours, in violation of the law, which only permits holding detainees for a maximum of three hours (or six hours in extreme cases), before they are arrested. At 9pm, soldiers put detainees on an army vehicle and drove them for an hour though different settlements roads then drove back to Nabi Saleh entrance where they were dropped off and released.

The Zionist IDF arrested the child Anan Naji Tamimi for the third time during the last forty days. Anan was arrested last month form his home at 3am in the morning , his charges was participating illegal protest and throwing stones according to a picture one of the soldiers took during the protest for one of the children while he threw stones.
The lawyer has proved that the pictures that they had is not of Anan and they released him after paying 500 dollars guarantee. The general attorney threaten him that he will arrest him again .
After one month, they arrested him again from his house at 2am in the morning , investigate him for 2 hours, beat him and show him the same picture they show the first time. Anan insisted that this pictre is not his and thats why he was realsed the first time. At 4am in the morning hand cuffed , blind folded the Zionist army released him after they threw him in an empty area and told him to go home alone. He struggled till he could remove the fold from his eyes and walk about half mile on a settler’s street alone. He said that he was very afraid that one of the settlers could see him and maybe they will beat him to death, he reached his home shaking from cold and fear, his hands were swollen from the tight hand cuffed.
This morning after one week of this incident, they [the Israeli military] arrested him for the third time on his way to school, according to the same picture. Anan is now in Ofer prison and tomorrow he has a hearing for the same cherges (participating illegal protest and throwing stones, as they said they have evidence which is the same picture that the judge refused in the first time because it was obvious that the person in the picture is not Anan ).
This is one story of what our children have to face and how much they have to suffer from this Zionist occupation .
*editor’s note: Anan is the eldest son of Nabi Saleh leader, Naji Tamimi, who was recently released from Israeli prison after spending one year as a political prisoner for his non-violent activism against Israel’s occupation. Naji was arrested and jailed by Israel’s occupation military courts for organising and participating in non-violent demonstrations against the Occupation.
