On the background of the regional uprising and the moment of truth expected at September.

Israeli expectation for the immanent political defeat on September at the United Nations and more, increase viciousness in many spheres of suppression of the Palestinians. This is expressed also in the joint struggles in Al-Araqeeb Bedouin village and in Palestinian neighborhood of Lod within Israel, and on South Hebron mountain region and Beit Ummar in the occupied Palestinian lands.

Beit Ummar

Today a few dozens of Palestinians, from Beit Ummar, a handful or internationals and five Israelis came to safra to plant trees on land owned by Palestinians but issued as a closed military area for 2 years.
That action was very successfully, over 200 trees were planted, we marched back to Beit Ummar with slogans and drums. The army tried to stop the action but had very little success. No one was arrested or injured.

The usual Friday demonstration against the separation fence and occupation.


This Friday Nabi Salih demonstration against the settlements and occupation was joined by a group of West Bank March 15 activists and was larger than usual. Some 80 people marched through the village's main street and then crossed into the fields to reach the spring and land being stolen and threatened by settlers. This turn to the fields also helped the protesters avoiding being fired at by the Israeli soldiers who awaited them down the street. Even before the marchers could reach the village's main road, Israeli soldiers came to stop them, throwing stun and tear gas grenades and shooting rubber-coated metal bullets at a non-violent protest. This, however, did not deter the protesters, who kept standing in front of the soldiers in defiance. The soldiers then turned to violently arresting two Palestinian protesters and attempting to arrest a third one.

After the soldiers left the fields with the arrested, protesters regathered and managed to cross the main road and into the hill that overlooks the village's spring. The army was too slow to respond but when it did, it attacked the protesters, shooting tear gas canisters at them, as they moved further away. The protesters than marched back through the village and into its center. During this time the army had already swarm ed the village, taking over roofs, throwing tear gas and stun grenades , and arresting four Palestinian by-standers. When the peaceful march reached the village's center, two Israeli supporters – who, according to the army, have violated a closed military zone order – were also arrested. A third was detained shortly.

Three of the Palestinian arrestees have already been released. The two Israelis are also likely to be released this evening . The three other Palestinians may be taken to Ofer military prison, where they will be subjected to a harsh military legal system, specifically designated for a prolonged imprisonment of Palestinians without a viable trial.
