  62. <p>On 24th March 2017 the popular resistance in Al-Mughayyir, north-east of Ramallah, held a demonstration against a new illegal outpost which was established approximately 10 days ago by Israeli settlers who set up caravans on Palestinian land. Basic buildings and infrastructure have already been built along with a new access road, all of which are protected by barbed wire and the constant presence of Israeli soldiers. Live ammunition was fired at Palestinian protesters <a href="http://maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=776095" target="_blank">injuring five</a>, according to a Palestinian news agency.</p>
  63. <p>The protest, which mobilized the people of four nearby towns and other popular struggle committees, was quickly repressed by Israeli forces, who fired teargas, live ammunition and rubber-coated steel bullets at demonstrators, injuring several Palestinians in the process.</p>
  64. <p><iframe width="620" height="349" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/m1me_pTDS3E?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p>
  65. <p>The action started with Palestinian demonstrators – who were joined by international and Israeli activists – gathering at the bottom of the hill where, according to local sources, the new outpost may eventually give way to a new settlement. At around 11:00, shortly after the demonstration had started, the Israeli forces stationed at the illegal settlement began firing teargas canisters in an attempt to disperse the demonstrators.</p>

  67. <p>The clashes continued with some attempts made by the Palestinians to get closer to the illegal outpost. However, Israeli forces began throwing stun grenades and firing at demonstrators with both rubber-coated steel bullets and live ammunition. Tear gas was fired by Israeli forces throughout the demonstration and Palestinians responded to the aggressors by throwing stones and returning tear gas canisters towards the soldiers.</p>

  69. <p>At around 12:30 the Israeli forces established a new strategic position at the bottom of the hill, intensifying their use of live ammunition. From here, a soldier with a sniper rifle fitted with a silencer fired at protesters with live ammunition. ISM activists witnessed three Palestinians sustaining injuries from live ammunition during the clashes. Though the demonstration began to disperse at around 13:00, Israeli forces continued to fire tear gas whilst the protesters fled the hill and back to their villages. Israeli forces flanked the road back to Al-Mughayyir.</p>

  71. <p>This new illegal outpost is being established on Palestinian land shared by the villages of Al-Mughayyir, Abu Falah and Kufr Malik and will possibly serve to replace the recently evicted Amona illegal settlement. Despite heavy repression by Israeli forces, Palestinian resistance to the illegal annexation of their land continues. The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (2013) recently documented <a href="https://www.ochaopt.org/documents/ocha_opt_al_mughayyir%20_case_study_2013_10_22_english.pdf" target="_blank">settler violence against the residents of Al-Mughayyir</a>.</p>

  88. <p>On 21st of March, Palestine celebrated their Mother&#8217;s Day. A group of Palestinian and international activists visited the village of Kafr ad Dik in the Salfit municipality. The activists delivered roses to the mothers and relatives of political prisoners and sat down with them to hear their stories. The action was organised by three Palestinian groups: Target Association for Rural Development &#8211; Burin; Handala Center for Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners; and, Retaj Foundation for Women.</p>
  89. <p>The following is a summary of their stories, a glimpse into the 6,500 political prisoners (<a href="http://www.addameer.org/statistics" target="_blank">January 2017</a>) that are imprisoned in Israeli prisons.</p>

  130. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>I’m OK.</p>
  131. <p>Actually, personally, my family and I are well, Alhamdililah! But I can feel the intensified fire under our feet.</p>
  132. <p>I know the feeling. And I know the explosion that comes after it.</p>
  133. <p>This week alone the Israeli apartheid government has escalated its actions, bombing Gaza daily while tightening the already lethal siege around it, announcing that the PLO fund that provides support for families of Palestinian martyrs is illegal, while killing more young boys and men, escalating land theft through settlement construction and land confiscation, and promoting a law that will regulate that theft, announcing that colonial settlers will invade al Aqsa under armed guard during Ramadan while making the call to prayer from mosques illegal … The ground under our feet is burning.</p>
  134. <p>I have felt this before. And I can only conclude that those in charge of the apartheid authorities know what they are doing. I have seen them do it before. They must know the Palestinian people will not just decide to roll over and die quietly. They must want a violent reaction in response to these actions, and I have no doubt that they will get one. Young people with no hope of being allowed to live with their dignity intact and with nothing to lose will sacrifice their lives in the hope that this situation will change for others.</p>
  135. <p>And the apartheid authorities will then respond by doing what they do best: a torrent of death and destruction that they can then display at the international arms trade exhibitions, with clinically proven, effective weapons, tested live in the modern battlefield of urban warfare, on a besieged and imprisoned population. They will show your military and police force, “We got them where it hurts, we destroyed essential public infrastructure and killed x people in x days and, the best part is, we got away with it. If we can do it, you can do it too. All you need is a smart system of security cameras and a fleet of killer drones. All for the discount price of …” and your countries are literally buying this.</p>
  136. <p>Now tell me again why BDS makes you uncomfortable?</p>

  156. <p>In the early morning of the 21<sup>st</sup> March a group of Israeli forces carried out ID checks and body searches on young Palestinian men and children on their morning commutes through the souk (old market) of Hebron.</p>
  157. <p>Two ISM activists were walking to a checkpoint to monitor and report on violations of freedom of movement when they encountered large numbers of Israeli soldiers in the souk. Local Palestinians were ordered at gunpoint to throw their ID cards on the ground for inspection, and many were subjected to body searches and made to sit in the road. One boy was ordered to remove his shoes and toss them towards the soldiers before being made to sit on the cold ground for over fifteen minutes.</p>

  161. <p>The incursion lasted for over an hour before the Israeli forces returned through the gate which leads to the military base, having searched over fifteen Palestinians and delayed many more. Incursions such as this highlight the restrictions on freedom of movement faced by Palestinians in Hebron and across the West Bank every day.</p>

  200. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p><strong>18th March 2017  |  International Solidarity Movement, al-Khalil team  |  Hebron, occupied Palestine </strong></p>
  201. <p>Yesterday evening, on March 17th, 16-year old Murad Yusif Abu Ghazi died after being shot by Israeli forces in Al Arrub refugee camp outside Hebron in the occupied West Bank. A second Palestinian identified as 17-year old Saif Salim Rushdie is in a critical condition after being shot in the chest by the Israeli forces in the same incident.</p>
  202. <p>The funeral for Abu Ghazi was held in Al Arrub camp today, and hundreds of mourners came to pay their respects. After the funeral, clashes erupted between Palestinians and Israeli forces and according to Ma&#8217;an News Agency, 8 young men were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets, receiving treatment on the scene. In addition, dozens of other Palestinians, among these women and children, were treated for severe tear gas inhalation.</p>
  203. <div id="attachment_48919" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-48919" src="https://palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/IMG_5756-600x337.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="337" srcset="//palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/IMG_5756-600x337.jpg 600w, //palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/IMG_5756-400x225.jpg 400w, //palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/IMG_5756-768x432.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Hundreds of mourners paid their respects at the funeral.</p></div>
  204. <p>Murad Yusif Abu Ghazi is be the thirteenth Palestinian to be killed by the Israeli army since the beginning of 2017. His death marks the second killing of a minor this year and once again highlights the excessive use of lethal force against civilians.</p>
  205. <p>According to an Israeli army spokesperson, the killing happened after firebombs were hurled at passing vehicles on a road near Al Arrub camp and &#8220;in response to the immediate threat, forces fired towards suspects&#8221;. The spokesperson added that investigations are still underway. Statistics provided by Yesh Din, an Israeli organisation of volunteers for human rights,  however demonstrate that criminal investigations into alleged offences committed by Israeli forces against Palestinians have a poor chance of being effectively investigated. According to <a href="http://www.yesh-din.org/en/december-2016-data-sheet-law-enforcement-idf-soldiers-suspected-harming-palestinians-summary-2015-data/">Yesh Din</a>, only 4 cases out of 186 criminal investigations in 2015 resulted in indictments.</p>

  224. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p><strong>17th March 2017  |  International Solidarity Movement, al-Khalil team  |  Hebron, occupied Palestine </strong></p>
  225. <p>Last week we reported on two of the <a href="https://palsolidarity.org/2017/03/a-new-generation-learns-to-shoot-the-occupation/">training sessions</a> run by Human Rights Defenders (HRD) here in Hebron for young people to use video as an activist tool against the occupation.  Today we wanted to find out more about what the students themselves think and I talked to Yasmin, a pupil at Qurtuba school in the heart of Tel Rumeida.  Yasmin looks quiet and shy as she sits next to me on the sofa, but as she talks it is clear she knows what she wants to say and what she wants to do: &#8220;I want to show what the Israelis do against my people here, how the soldiers and the settlers humiliate the students and the teachers.&#8221;</p>
  226. <p>Qurtuba school sits above Shuhada street and the students have to approach it via a staircase controlled by soldiers, yards from one of the tiniest and most extreme settlements in the heart of H2.  Students and teachers are so frequently harassed that fear and anxiety is a constant element of school life.  Yasmin told me that only that same day soldiers had entered the school and made sexually harassing remarks to the young women there.  Soldiers also regularly block their way to school, although they know perfectly well that the children are students.</p>
  227. <p>Settlers regularly insult, bully and assault children on their way to school and some of this has been already caught on camera.  The most notorious settlers are well known to the students who will run to avoid them.  A fortnight ago one girl broke her leg trying to get away from the settler Anat Cohen, whose history of assault and harassment of Palestinians and internationals is among the worst.</p>
  228. <p>When internationals like ISM are there, then we report these events:  we reported when Yasmin&#8217;s friend broke her leg, when soldiers forced Qurtuba children to leave school early so that <a href="https://palsolidarity.org/2017/03/curfew-harassment-and-break-in-for-shuhada-street-as-settlers-celebrate-purim/">settlers could celebrate</a> Purim without the presence of their neighbours, or when <a href="https://youtu.be/VSkC4Kfrd1o">settlers invaded the kindergarten</a>.  But we are not there all the time and Yasmin feels Palestinians should report events themselves: &#8216;when this happens I can have proof against the soldier &#8211; otherwise people will not believe &#8211; then they will have trust&#8217;.</p>
  229. <p>In the middle of the interview settlers invade the garden of the house we are in.  Emad Abu Shamsiya and Badee Dwaik, activists with HRD, come out with their cameras and the settlers scatter: it is a neat illustration of the power of the camera.</p>
  230. <p>And for the future? &#8220;I will work to finish my education &#8211; Israelis do not like us to have a good education &#8211; I will study to become a journalist and expose the occupation.  This project has given me extra motivation.&#8221;  I am sure Yasmin will make a formidable witness both now and in the future.</p>

  254. <p>17th March 2017 | International Solidarity Movement, Ramallah team | Ni’lin, occupied Palestine</p>
  255. <p>Today on 17/03/2017 the residents of Ni&#8217;lin alongside internationals and Israeli activists held a demonstration in memory of Rachel Corrie and Tristan Anderson, against the apartheid wall and against the occupation of Palestine.</p>
  256. <p>A parade of around fifty demonstrators, including Israeli and ISM activists, marched from the olive groves outside the town towards the apartheid wall. Palestinian demonstrators carried flags and placards depicting ISM activists Tristan Anderson, critically injured after being shot in the head with a long range tear gas missile by Israeli forces at the same demonstration eight years ago; and Rachel Corrie, who was murdered by the Israeli forces fourteen years ago yesterday.</p>
  257. <div id="attachment_48915" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-48915" src="https://palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC09550-600x338.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="338" srcset="//palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC09550-600x338.jpg 600w, //palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC09550-400x225.jpg 400w, //palsolidarity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC09550-768x433.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text"><em>Apartheid wall</em></p></div>
  258. <p>Local demonstrators set fire to tyres along the wall, waving flags and chanting at the illegal Israeli settlement located on their lands beyond, whilst Israeli activists called across using a megaphone. The Israeli Forces arrived shortly after, firing teargas over the apartheid wall and setting off sound grenades. Obscured by the smoke from the burning tyres, soldiers took photographs and fired some rubber-coated metal bullets at the protesters whilst the volleys of teargas continued. Young local men sent stones and teargas canisters back over the apartheid wall with their slingshots. The demonstrators ended by moving up the hill and back towards the town, having suffered no injuries.</p>
  259. <p>The non-violent demonstrations against the apartheid wall and the occupation in Ni’lin have been going on weekly since 2008, as attempt to get back the farm land which was stolen from the villagers. Despite deaths, critical injuries and much repression the resistance continues.</p>

  279. <p>On Friday 17th of March the people of Kafr Qaddum gathered for another weekly demonstration which was repressed by Israeli forces, who shot teargas, stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets at demonstrators. Israeli forces were seen on at least one rooftop in Kafr Qaddum, as well as a nearby hill, which they used as vantage point to shoot at protesters.</p>
  280. <p>Before the demonstration had started the Israeli forces were strategically stationed within the village of Kafr Qaddum, some even on the rooftop of a Palestinian home. Around 12:30, just a few minutes before the demonstration would have begun, teargas was fired. Some youth from the village began throwing stones at the Israeli forces in an attempt to drive them out. The clashes continued until around 14:30, when Israeli forces withdrew after having fired teargas, rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades at protesters.</p>

  282. <p>Before the end of the demonstration rubber-coated steel bullets were shot at protesters causing light injuries to two pro-Palestinian Israeli activists. Both the rubber-coated metal bullets bounced before impact limiting the damage inflicted.</p>
  283. <p>The people of Kafr Qaddum have been protesting actively for over five years against the closure of their main road to Nablus and the expansion of the illegal Israeli settlement of Kedumim. This road closure translates into a longer commute for the villagers when travelling to Nablus, as such it also has an important social and economical impact on Palestinian communities. These demonstrations continue despite encountering heavy repression with the <a href="https://palsolidarity.org/2016/06/israeli-forces-shot-3-youth-with-live-ammunition-in-just-two-days-in-kafr-qaddum/" target="_blank">Israeli forces regularly using live ammunition</a> against the local activists.</p>
