Palestine-Israel, The smell of the nearing victory the joint struggle contribute to so much to.
The Israeli media is nearly obsessed with the escalation of the B.D.S. as if they know things they do not disclose. Both supporters and rejectors of the end of the occupation start to regard it as immanent and not in the far future. A section of the Israeli capitalist elite which is suffering from the boycott and fear its escalation start to organize to accelerate the end of occupation. 100 of them traveled for the Dabus conference and official organization was established. On the ground, it seems that the efforts of the Israeli state forces escalate their repression of on going struggles and make more efforts to transfer villagers from strategic locations. Bil'in will celebrate the ninth anniversary of the ongoing struggle on the 28th of February.

The Israeli army suppress the march of Kafr Qudoom causing many suffocated cases Today in K Q march nearly 50 soldiers participated suppression the people who share in it by tear gas canisters and sound bombs and metal bullets covered with plastic. The marsh as usual began after praying with participation of hundreds from the people and friends from international movements and Israeli friends. The army shoot many canisters directly towards us sometimes from guns other times from the jeep. We as people of KAFR QUDOOM believe in our right to use our road free and also believe in such kind of struggle not only to open our road but to end occupation. At the same time and although we face suppression in many kinds from the Israeli army arresting, storming the village, damaging the houses, check points we will not gave up
South Hebron hills
Harassment of Palestinian farmers and shepherds in South Hebron hills by both settlers and the army continues. These forces take over their lands and prevent them from accessing it. This coming Saturday, February 22st, we will be heading again to our activity in several locations in the area, accompany Palestinian farmers and shepherds to their lands and help them stand up for their rights. Without the presence of activists, many farmers don't get the chance to cultivate their land. There is a direct link between the number of activists who come to accompany the farmers and their ability to live a relatively normal life.
"Hebron marked today the 20th anniversary to the Baruch Goldstein massacre in the Ibrahimi mosque. At dawn of 25 February, 1994, Baruch Goldstein, a settler and a physician, opened fire on hundreds of Muslim worshipers at the mosque, killing 29 of them. In Hebron/Khalil, there will be a protest today to open Shuhada Street. The street which was the market street, and the social center of the city, is closed to Palestinian movement since the Goldstein massacre in 1994, including to its own residents who are obliged to climb to their roofs, and exit their homes through adjacent streets. The protest to open Shuhada street are amongst the hardest demonstrations that I had experienced. The army violently disperses the protestors, and the sound of shooting echoes loudly between the houses. But no less difficult than the tear gas, stun grenades and bullets, is the sight of a checkpoint in the middle of the street, in the middle of everything, the utmost meaning of the word occupation."
Friday- February 21, 2014 About two thousand protested in Hebron today, activists from various political parties and organizations,international activists, and Israeli ones (including anarchists) came together in defiance of this continuous closure and restriction of the mobility of Palestinians in their city, calling to open Shuhada street.
The IOF responded with barrages of tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades deployed against demonstrators in an attempt to disperse them. Several injuries reported. One demonstrator was taken to hospital after sustaining a head injury. Five people were arrested today (Friday) afternoon, and more than 13 were injured during the annual Open Shuhada Street protest organized by Youth Against Settlements in Hebron in memorial of 20 years since the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre.
