Israel started the attack on the Hamas to sabotage the Hamas compromise with the west bank authority, and restore a weakened Hamas independent rule in the Gaza strip. Hamas compromise was a response to Egyptian closer intended to dismantle the Hamas. The failed Israeli attack will force it to contribute its share to significantly open the closer of the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which was till the attack based on the bare minimal on the margin of humanitarian catastrophe. Whatever the details of the new cease fire and arrangements, the failure of Israel vicious assault to stop the Hamas from firing rockets on Israel is a significant "game changer". The failed attack on Gaza and the continuing popular struggle in the west bank are hastening the international pressures to end the occupation of the West bank and the closer of the Gaza strip.
As usual, Bil'in weekly demonstration took place today after the noon time prayers. About 20 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative and more than a dozen internationals joined the Bil'iners and a group of the neighboring village Safa. The special theme of the demonstration today was against the newest slaughters in Gaza and the killing by an Israeli sniper a youth of the nearby village in a last week demo there against the slaughters in Gaza. The Israeli army was particularly brutal in their repression of today's demonstration. The army attacked the protests with tear gas long before we even reached the wall. After their failed attempt to disperse us by shooting from behind the wall, They invaded with their jeeps the Bil'in lands freed only 3 years ago and started shooting tear gas from them. Many of us suffered from suffocation and temporary blindness as a result.
08/08/2014 As the ceasefire in Gaza was violated, resulting in more Palestinian casualties, the people of Nabi Saleh marched in solidarity with Gaza, calling to lift the siege and protesting the massacre. Over 1800 Palestinians were killed so far, about a quarter of them children. The IOF attempted to disperse the march with barrages of tear gas canisters and rubber coated steel bullets. No major injuries reported.

Over 200 unarmed dedicated demonstrators participated.
Today's first contact: snipers shoot two demonstrators in the leg and the back with silenced tutu bullets.seems Israel has a new widespread policy of firing at unarmed protesters.
Later shot a third protester. Also bombarded us with abrupt thick barrages of tear gas.
The shabab responded with some rocks and a lovely tire fire.
After two hours we dispersed.
