Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle still count*
The separation fence is no more at the center of attention - both in the efforts of the Israeli state which use more brutal means for the transfer of the Palestinians from rural areas, and in the Palestinian public which focus around the survival of the Palestinian authority in the west bank. The danger of the collapse of the PA forced israel to allow more Palestinian workers to enter Israel - half of them with official permits. It also provided some monitarry help too. However the efforts to clear rural areas with the help of colonialist settlers para militarists and terrorist increased the joint struggles against it - mainly in the South Hebron Mountains. The joint struggle in Beit Ummar, Nabi Saleh against the state helped encrouchments by colonial settlers and Qadum are still worrying the occupation managers who gradually escalated the efforts to crash them.

weekly demonstration, Oct. 5, 2012
As every Friday, Palestinians from Nabi Saleh together with International and Israeli supporters protested against the occupation and spoliation of their lands and spring by the nearby settlement. Also as every week, they faced attacks by the Israeli army who uses this week: tear gas (many shot at head levels and at houses); rubber-coated metal bullets; skunk (foul-smelling chemical liquid); and live ammunition. The village was totally closed down from morning to late afternoon. A miracle with all that was shot today that nobody got seriously injured or killed.
Activist in Nabi Saleh are reporting that in addition to firing tear gas (between houses in the village) and rubber coated steel bullets, the IOF has just also started firing a large barrage of live ammunition.
During the weekly Friday demonstration in Nabi Saleh, dozens of Palestinians, international and Israeli activists marched together to protest the occupation and continuing land garb by settlers. The Israeli army deployed in large forces on the road leading to the main entrance to the village and on the mountain top, using skunk water, tear gas, rubber coated steel bullets and several rounds of live ammunition to disperse protesters.
