Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the background of house demolition

Because of internal considerations, in parallel of demolition minimal part of illegal settler colonialist building on private Palestinian lands, demolition of Palestinian houses increase. As part of it is the confrontation of the joint struggle in the hills of south of Hebron region. Another part was this week demolition of Bil'in outposts in the returned lands adjacent to the new route of the separation wall. Miraculously the older one, built nearly 7 years ago at the beginning of the struggle under cover of a heavy raining survived till this week. On the first few months we often spent nights near the fire at the adjacent shade - with members of the village comity, in order to protect the outpost from being destructed by Israeli state forces. The usual week end struggle continued - including the flag bearers, Beit Ummar, Bil,in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, and occupied East Jerusalem.

Bil'in 25-11-11 demo

It seems that following the moving of the separation wall to the west, the interest in the struggle against the separation wall/fence and occupation is gradually diminishing. The seasonal decrease in the participation of international activists and Palestinians of the region is joined with diminishing of the interest of Israelis too. Today, less than 10 Israelis with similar number of international activists joined about two dozens of Bil'iners in the march and travel to the new separation wall. We held placards for the release of Ashraf Abu Rahme arrested weeks ago on the trumped charge he organize the demos and throw stones. We chanted all the long way to the new wall the usual slogans. when we approached the wall the Israeli state forces already started to shoot tear gas canisters on the shabab on the southern section of the wall. Not long later they started to shoot on us too.

After we absorbed the usual dose of tear gas we returned to the village... to return next Friday.

Nabi Saleh weekly demonstration, Nov. 25, 2011

A group of international activists arrived to Nabi Saleh in solidarity with people there following the terrorizing night raids. Army raiding Nabi Saleh now, spraying foul-smelling water directly into houses. A protester was shot in the face with a rubber-coated bullet. A peaceful activist from Nabi Saleh village in the West Bank : "We hardly marched and chanted when the Israeli army sprayed the protestors with skunk & tear gas we were standing doing nothing". Palestinian activist from Nabi Saleh: "Another round of tear gas, but actually today the wind is on our side!".

A comrade of the anarchists against the wall report:
"Dozens participated in this week's demonstration in Nabi Saleh against the theft of its lands and spring by the Halamish Israeli settlement and the Israeli occupation that sustains it. Nabi Saleh residents, other Palestinians, and international and Israeli supporters marched peacefully from the center of the village.
This demonstration followed days of Israeli complete siege over the village and a massive night raid, resulting in the arrest of three people from the village.
As always, a peaceful demonstration met with Israeli army attack. Volleys of tear gas canisters were shot on the entire demonstration from a cannon installed on Israeli military jeeps. Sole canisters were also shoot by Israeli soldiers directly at people, in violation of their army's own regulations. Israeli forces used their “skunk” track, carrying a foul-smelling water cannon. This time the “skunk” wondered around the village and sprayed houses in a blatant unlawful repressive measure.
Few people also threw stones to ward off the Israeli army's incursion. A group of people managed to approach the soldiers, despite threats of arrests.
One youth was injured in the forehead by Israeli rubber coated bullet. He was helped into an ambulance that took him to hospital."
