Palestine-Israel,The joint struggle and the vicious Israeli transfer efforts
Arkib (1948 Bedouins), Bil'in, Dahams (Ramla 1948 village), East Jerusalem (occupied 1967 mainly Sheikh Jarah, Shuafat, and the Bedouins of the region) Ma'asarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills - the main locations of the joint struggles the anarchists against the wall are involved in. As the Israeli pretending of striving for any kind of peace was exposed, the transfer efforts are intensified. It seems the hazards taking and gambling of Israel on the continuation of the occupation is increasing. The Israeli government count on the pro Israeli lobby of the US right and the strategic value of Israel in the present troubled time and recklessly disregard the mounting international pressure... though the Israeli officials and the public keep worrying in public about the economic and political pressures.
Friday 26.9.14: Nine Israelis, ten international and dozen Bil'iners (due to the competition of the demonstration at the same hours in Azaria in solidarity with the Bedouins) We made our presence in challenge of the presence of the armed forces of the State of Israel. When the armed forces decided that the confrontation is prolonged excessively, they started firing tear gas at us. Due to the changing wind currents, and our broad spread, they had to send at us their armored Jeeps and the bullies in order to force us to return to the village. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?
Occupation forces Suppressed Al Ma'sara march which was set up by the popular committees against the wall on a weekly basis. Israeli occupation forces prevented the march from reaching confiscated land. The march raised slogans condemning the daily crimes committed by the occupation against the Palestinian. The popular Committees confirmed that settlement expansion in Bethlehem is a proof of the occupation's failure in implementing the settlement plans in other area and they called for unity of all the Palestinian people in front of these settler expansions.
Around 35 Palestinians, Israelis and internationals demonstrated today in Nabi Saleh against occupation, land grab, Wall and apartheid. Nabi Saleh is a 500 inhabitants village in the occupied West Bank. The non violent demonstrations have been taking place every Friday since 2009 . Today the IOF was suppressing the demonstrators using tear gas and rubber coated metal bullets.

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, September 27, 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.
Today (Saturday 27.9.14) at the South Hebron Hills, accompanying Palestinians shepherds to their land - a quiet morning with 6 herds in Um-el-Arais. Later we joined a small demonstration in Susya, near a new tent the Settlers had built on Palestinian land. In both places we met Rami, a Druze officer in the civil administration. The best collaborator the Israeli army can have to sustain the Occupation.

On Sunday, September 14, 2014, four Palestinian shepherds from Qawawis village in the South Hebron Hills were grazing their herd near the illegal outpost Mitzpe Yair, accompanied by two international volunteers. They were grazing in an area that is Palestinian-owned. Suddenly two settlers from the outpost appeared and assaulted one of the shepherds. The volunteers filmed the goings-on. Then the settlers attacked the volunteers, grabbed their cameras and smashed a volunteer's cell phone. The assailants then ran off to the outpost. The shepherds and their accompaniers returned to their village. A while later, policemen arrived at the village and detained the assaulted shepherd and the volunteers for questioning for several hours, since the attackers claimed to the police that stones had been hurled at them.

For nearly ten years now, the people of the Palestinian village Bil'in in the occupied West Bank have been struggling against the separation fence and the erection of the Jewish settlement of Modi'in Ilit on their lands beyond the fence. The Israeli army often assaults the village and arrests inhabitants in order to suppress their struggle and obtain information about the protest activists in the village.
On Sunday, September 14th, 2014, two boys from Bil'in, 15-year old Ibrahim and 13-year old Ahmad Abu Rahma were on their way to school in the village. Soldiers who had entered the village arrested Ibrahim. A military judge ruled he could be released on bail of 5000 NIS. The boys had not carried out any act of aggression against the soldiers.
