The Israeli state forces escalate their repression lately. Their main target are pressure on Palestinian farmers to transfer out from the Jordan valley and the south of Hebron hills, and the joint struggle against settlers expansion and Israeli state terror at Beit Ummar, Nebi Saleh, and Qadum. All along the last weeks there are demonstrations and vigils against the intended bombing attack of Israel on the nuclear facilities of Iran. Few of them in front of the security compound at Kaplan street, others were mainly in front of the not far away apartment tower where the security minister Barak live.

The struggle against the harassment of refugees and the social struggle continue too but no large masses are involved.

The end of the Summer is still hot in Bil'in this Friday. As Usual most of us went by car from the village center to the Abu Lamun park near the separation wall. About a dozen Israelis, two dozen internationals, a delegation of youth from Nablus (with eggs) and Bil'iners, started the demo by approaching the near by wall with the usual chants.
After a while the eggs started to fly in the direction of the soldiers piping behind the wall. Slowly the state forces tried to make us smell the Fragrance of Israel using the spray of Skunk like flavored water. The northern winds carried the water away but still forced us to keep a distance from the wall. Only after about half an hour the real shower of tear gas canisters was shot on us.
The second wave of tear gas marked the end of the demonstration and we returned to the village.

"Rough day in Nabi Saleh. Massive forces of IOF and border police invaded the village. They were instructed to break the doors of the houses, and get everybody out. Many Palestinian and Israelis have been arrested, no accurate numbers yet. Amongst the Arrestees, Nariman Tamimi. A Palestinian youth lost two fingers. The soldiers shot directly at his hand. It isn't clear whether they were using direct impact or live ammo bullets. They are using live ammo inside the village".
After being driven from one settlement to another for a good few hours all the detainees were recently released at the entrance to Nabi Salih. With no conditions or bail.

Al-Ma'sara weekly demonstration, Aug. 24, 2012
A relatively quiet demo in Kufar Kaddum this Friday.
We were some 200 Palestinians, 5 Israelis, 2-3 Internationals.
The soldiers and the bulldozer stayed away from us and did not get into the village.
A number of tear gas canisters were shot, no one injured or arrested.
In the end we celebrated our victory over the forces of evil.
The falafel in Nebi Elias was a bit dry, but the salads compensated.
