WAFA: “Teen injured from ordnance left behind by occupation army in Hebron”

Posted by:Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

A Palestinian teenager sustained moderate injuries today after a piece of ordnance left behind the Nazi occupation army exploded in the area of Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron in the Nazi occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian security sources.

Mohammad Yousef Abu Aram, 16-year-old, was moved to hospital after he was injured in the explosion of the ordnance left behind the Nazi occupation army in the area.

The Nazi occupation army usually conducts drills in the Nazi occupied West Bank, and Palestinian families often receive notices ordering them to leave their homes for various periods until the drills are over.

Palestinians living in live-fire training areas have to worry about unexploded ordnance left behind by the Israeli army after the drills, which have led to the death of many Palestinians, including children, over the past years.

Nazi soldiers Shoot, Injure Two Palestinians at Weekly Kufur Qaddoum March

 Posted by: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

Two Palestinians were injured, on Friday, when Nazi soldiers opened fire with tear-gas towards the peaceful protesters in Kufur Qaddoum village, east of Qalqilia, in the northern occupied West Bank, according to a local official.

Two Palestinian civilians, including a teen and a volunteer paramedic were struck with tear-gas canisters, while dozens more suffered the toxic effects of tear-gas inhalation, during the weekly procession, held to express the collective rejection of illegal Nazi colonies.

Morad Eshteiwi, the media spokesman for the popular resistance, stated that Nazi troops invaded the village, occupied citizens’ rooftops and aimed at the participants, striking a 19 year old in the neck, and a volunteer paramedic in the leg, both with tear-gas canisters.

Dozens of demonstrators and other villagers suffocated on tear-gas fumes which spread throughout the town. All injuries were treated on the scene.

Locals have demonstrated every Friday and Saturday for many years to insist that the main road to Kufur Qaddoum village be reopened, in order to allow for easier commuting to Nablus, east of the village.

Nazi occupation authorities closed the road in 2003 in order to exclusively serve the illegal Nazi Jewish settlers in the area, at the expense of the local Palestinian population.

Nazi soldiers Attack Nonviolent Protesters Near Nablus, Ramallah

Posted by: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

 

Nazi soldiers attacked, Friday, nonviolent Palestinian protesters marching against Nazi illegal colonies in Beit Dajan village, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and Deir Jarir, northeast of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Media sources in Nablus said hundreds of residents marched from the center of Beit Dajan, on Friday afternoon, and headed towards large swaths of their lands which Nazi intends to illegal annex for the construction and expansion of its illegal colonies.

They added that the Nazi soldiers resorted to the excessive use of force against them, and fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades, causing scores of residents to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The Nazi attack took place in the area where weekly protests have been held over the last two months, after Israel decided to illegally annex the lands to build its segregated illegal colony.

In addition, the Nazi soldiers violently attacked dozens of protesters, holding the weekly nonviolent protest in Deir Jarir village, northeast of Ramallah, causing scores to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The weekly protests in Deir Jarir started months ago after the Nazi regime announced a new plan to build an illegal colony on the villagers’ lands.

Ayman Allawi, the mayor of Deir Jarir, told the WAFA Palestinian News Agency that the Nazi soldiers fired a barrage of rubber-coated steel bullets, concussion grenades, and gas bombs at the nonviolent protesters, causing dozens to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Approximately two weeks ago, the colonists set installed a tent on the Palestinian lands, and started working on establishing a new colonialist outpost, including infrastructure.

It is worth mentioning that Deir Jarir has also been subject to escalating the Nazi invasions by the soldiers, and attacks carried out by the illegal colonists targeting the local, their homes, and lands.

“Palestinian Gandhi” Issa Amro

KATHRYN SHIHADAH 

BREAKING: “Palestinian Gandhi” Issa Amro convicted in Israel

Issa Amro, Palestinian human rights defender, leads a peaceful protest in Hebron in the Palestinian West Bank.

The Israeli military court announced today its guilty verdict against Palestinian Issa Amro, in what human rights advocates have called a “campaign of persecution” against a nonviolent community organizer.

by Kathryn Shihadah

On Wednesday morning, an Israeli military court handed Palestinian human rights activist Issa Amro a guilty verdict on 6 of 16 counts. Charges are related to his nonviolent protests and organizing against the Israeli occupation.

Middle East Eye reports that Amro, who was recognized by the United Nations as “Human Rights Defender of the Year” in 2010, was convicted on 3 counts of “participating in a rally without a permit,” 2 counts of “obstructing a soldier,” and 1 count of “assault.”

Amnesty International has characterized the charges as “baseless,” and part of a “campaign of persecution” against Amro.

The obstruction charge relates to a sit-in protest in 2012; the assault charge refers to a case that had already been closed, in which he allegedly shoved a soldier in 2010.

As If Americans Knew reported earlier, Amro’s trial has been ongoing since August 2016. (A link to contact Congress members on his behalf is here.)

Silencing peaceful voices

After the ruling was announced, Issa Amro declared, “Today Israel announced that Palestinians are not allowed to peacefully protest the Israeli occupation without a permit from the occupier,” adding, “this conviction is the military system against the Palestinian nonviolent resistance.”

Amro’s lawyer stated that the verdict is “an example of how the courts are used in order to deter the important voices of human rights defenders”; she denounced the military court as “just an organ of occupation.”

One Israeli expert believes the court chose to convict Amro on just 6 charges instead of all 16 because of his celebrity, and expects a 6-month sentence for each violation – although they may be served concurrently.

Amro’s sentencing is scheduled for February 8th; it is expected that his legal team will file an appeal after that.

The guilty verdict was expected by those who follow the Israeli military court system, as it famously has a conviction rate over 99% for Palestinian prisoners – due at least in part to threats and torture used regularly to coerce confessions, including from children.

International pressure

Amnesty International has been putting pressure on Israel to drop the charges against Amro, and

to end their systematic attacks against Palestinian activists who speak up and peacefully act against Israel’s long-standing military occupation. Such attacks are an assault on the right to freedom of expression. The international community must act now to stop this campaign of repression and work to ensure that human rights defenders and activists in Israel and the OPT are protected from arbitrary interference in their work.

In 2017, Bernie Sanders and 35 other members of Congress appealed to then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Issa Amro’s behalf, asking him to urge Israeli leaders to reconsider the charges.

Israel’s justice system

Israeli prisons currently hold about 4,400 Palestinian political prisoners, 1 in 10 of which are administrative detainees being held without charge, and 160 of which are children.

Multiple human rights organizations have reported that Israel’s military court system is “in violation of international standards”; it detains and prosecutes about 700 Palestinian children alone each year.

Israel routinely arrests Palestinian activists – each weekend in Palestinian towns, Israeli military invade peaceful protests, often using rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas, and “skunk water” to disburse the crowds.

Protests have been going on for years, stemming from Israel’s draconian occupation of Palestinian land since 1967, and the justice crisis initiated by the creation of the state in 1948, in which 750,000 Palestinians were displaced and became refugees.
