The joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Sheikh Jarah, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Southern Hills of Hebron, Jaffa (Tel Aviv)

When the European pressure on Israel to compromise with the Palestinian elite collected momentum - already diminishing exports, Israel tried to take advanced of the kidnapped three settlers youth applying "plans from the drawer" trying to ignite armed Intifada. Nearly three weeks of propaganda based on lies (as if they are searching for the already known to them to be dead three youth) was all over the media. When lastly the bodies were "found", lies were exposed, and the harassments failed to ignite Intifada. The mounted hate crimes of the Israeli extreme right and murder of a Palestinian youth of the annexed East Jerusalem ignited an extreme response there and within the Palestinian regions within the 1948 borders. Vicious harassment of US-Palestinian youth - cousin of the murdered youth which was video typed became together with the video of the kidnapped cousin became viral all over the world and ignited solidarity demos all over the world.

Friday. 27.6.14 demo - in spite the hot weather, half a dozen with the anarchists against the wall and dozen internationals joint Bil'iner activists in the weekly demonstration against the wall and occupation. Due to friendly wind the Israeli state forces tested their own tear gas. After less than an hour of confronting them the end of the demo was declared and we returned to the village.

Friday 4.7.14 Today's Bil'in weekly demonstration was against settler kidnapping of Palestinian youth Mohammad Khdeir. Miko Peled, the Israeli author and peace activist, has been arrested by the Israeli Military forces, during Bel'in weekly demo while he was holding a photo of Mohamed khudeir the kid who's been brutally tortured to death by Israeli settlers.Mico was released after 9 hours of interrogation about being in closed military zone... But really because he was not living the area near the wall fast enough. As I and another comrade were living fast enough, though we set to rest on our way, they passed near us but let us rest in peace...

The Israeli police force’s Yoav unit is revealing the reasons for its existence, at the Bedouin village Al-Arakib. Twice last week (on Sunday and again on Wednesday), unit policemen demolished sheds which volunteers had installed inside Al-Arakib’s cemetery. The police ensured a presence in the village every day of the week, driving very close to people who were present on site, raising dust that made it difficult to breathe or to see. At night, they drove inside the cemetery, making a nuisance for the villagers, who have to sleep under the open skies. The police even disturbed the womenfolk, who were unable to relieve themselves with modesty. Near the end of the week, the Yoav unit was reinforced by a Border Police unit; together they harassed both residents of the village and their solidarity supporters.

Don't say we didn’t know #415

On Thursday, 19th June, 2014, an IDF force arrived at an entry road to a Palestinian area, Khallet El’Miya, north of Yatta, and demolished some 700 meters of that access road. Similarly, the entrance from the main road was blocked off. The force went on to demolish seven buildings in the nearby Palestinian village, Khallet a-Furun.
