After the mainly political defeat of Israel in the attack on Gaza and the following defeat in the US, the Israeli state forces repression of the weekly demonstrations was met with restraining orders. It was expressed in a few cases of small units of soldiers escaping from stone-throwing youth - the video of the most pictorial one played again and again on Israeli TV channels. Rightist "talking heads" complained that the fleeing soldiers insulted Israel and harsher measures must be taken. The more realistic ones pointed to the international loss of respect for Israel that harmed protesters would aggravate. In addition to the usual Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Al-Ma'sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'lin, Qaddum, South Hebron hills, and Sheikh Jarrah, there was the addition this week of Kufr ad-Dik and Krayut. [Italiano]
The Friday demo revealed the deterioration of the moral of the Israeli state forces. They do not stop the demonstrators from passing spools of barbed wire and approaching the wall. They put an Israeli flag for all to see but after half-hearted efforts failed they let the Palestinian flag posited a meter from it to stay. A team of state forces confronted the shabab but after they received a returned tear gas canister with added stones they fled to a distant position.
They even did not bother to bring the machine that sprays the demonstrators with stinking water.
Though it was a relatively smaller and shorter demonstration it was finished on the demonstrators' own terms and with good morale.

Nabi Saleh Weekly demonstration, Dec. 7, 2012
While in Tel Aviv they mark Human Rights Day in Nabi Saleh we mark a year to the murder of Mustafa Tamimi. Disregarding both of the occasions the IOF shoots tear gas canisters directly at the protestors, as well as skunk water and rubber bullets.
During the weekly Friday demonstration in Nabi Saleh, Palestinians and solidarity activists commemorated the first anniversary of the martyrdom of Mustafa Tamimi, killed by a tear gas canister shot by an Israeli soldier as well as Rushdi Tamimi, who was shot and killed three weeks ago. Protesters were carrying banners in Hebrew and Arabic naming the soldier who shot Mustafa Tamimi as well as others in the IOF chain of command. The IOF attempted to suppress the demonstration with massive amounts of tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets, and for several hours residents resisted attempts to invade the village; a few suffered injuries due to rubber bullets and many suffocated from the tear gas.

"Just to let you know that the popular committee of Nabi Saleh honored our group today with a prize shield for our solidarity with them in their struggle".
