31/07/14: Breaking down the prison walls

Today activists from SFP and volunteers of the Bilal Najjar Cultural Centre in Burin donated blood for their injured brothers and sisters in Gaza. SFP also visited the family of two prisoners (Maher Samara and Thaer Najjar) to show their solidarity and pledge to break down all the prison walls, whether they are around Gaza, the West Bank or Apartheid Israel’s prisons.

Thaer Najjar from Burin was kidnapped by the Israeli Army yesterday. Today he appeared in Salem Military Court and was detained for a further 7 days. His next court appearance is due on Wednesday 6 August. He is being held in Meggido Apartheid Israeli prions, inside the 1948 borders in direct violation of international law. SFP activists visited his mother and father in Burin village to show their support and commitment to continue the struggle for freedom until all the prisoners are home free.

SFP would like to extend our sincere thanks to all those around the world showing solidarity with Palestine, particularly the Palestinians imprisoned and under bombardment in Gaza. As the death toll climbs even higher, to over 1400, we ask you all to step up the pressure, particularly on those business and Government’s enabling and supporting the Occupation in it’s massacre.

30/07/14: Palestine under attack: report from Burin

 
For the third day running illegal settlers and the Israeli Army attacked the village of Burin. The settlers, from the Jewish-only colony of Bracha, attacked the village at around 19:00. The Army then arrived on the scene and fired a barrage of tear gas, rubber coated steel bullets and stun grenades at the youth of Burin as they tried to defend the village against the attack.

This sustained attack on the villages of the West Bank area of Palestine comes at the same time as Apartheid Israel continues to bomb the east, Gaza. Today 19 Palestinians were murdered as the Israeli Army bombed a UNWRA school where they had taken refuge from the attacks. This brings the total so far of those mudered since the latest attack began to over 1280, including over 240 children.

SFP asks all those that have taken to the streets to remain on the streets and step up their efforts to demand a free Palestine! and a return of the refugees. We also ask that you join the many who are now taking direct action against the enablers and supporters of the Occupation (businesses and Governments). If you are based in London we encourage you to participate in an action organized by London Palestine Action Group, targeting supermarkets that sell Israeli goods.

هاجم عشران المستوطنين من مستوطنة براخا المنطقة الشرقية من قرية بورين حيث دارت اشتباكان عنيفة بين الشبان و المستوطنين و تدخل الجيش و بدأ باطلاق وابل من قنابل الغاز و قنابل الصوت و الرصاص المطاطي حيث اسمرت الاستباكات ثلاث ساعات متواصلة

وتاتي هذه الاعتدات في الظل المجاز التي تنفذ في مدينة غزة و في ظل الصمت العربي و الدولي تجاه هذه المجازر  و الجدير في الذكر  انه تم استشهاد اكثر من 17 مواطن في مجزرة جديدة لقوات الاحتلال بحق المواطنين في حي الشجاعية في مدينة غزة حركة الضامن من اجل فلسطين حرة (sfp) تناشد الناس في جميع أنحاء العالم للانضمام إلى النضال من أجل الحرية. نطلب أيضا أن أولئك في جميع أنحاء العالم التي اتخذت بالفعل إلى الشوارع تضامنا تبقى في الشوارع حتى فلسطين الحرة واللاجئين من العودة إلى ديارهم

29/07/14: Thaer Nasser Najjar kidnapped from Burin

At approximately 10:30am today the Israeli Army erected a flying checkpoint in the village of Burin and kidnapped 22 year old Thaer Nasser Najjar. Thaer was taken to an unknown location and to date SFP and lawyers have been unable to locate him to ensure his safety and demand access to legal counsel.

Thousands of Palestinians are interned by Apartheid Israel, many held without trail or charge. Since the killing of 3 illegal settlers last month Israel has been invading and kidnapping Palestinians on mass across the West Bank. Those that are put on trial are subject to military courts, which does not have any semblance of justice or rule of law. The ‘conviction’ rate stands at 99.6%. This is due to the fact that many Palestinians are forced to agree (under torture) to lesser charges, as to plead ‘not guilty’ would mean a lengthy trial (sometimes years in prison while they await court dates) and harsher sentence. Many agree to ‘deals’ with the Israeli intelligence to be released early in exchange for pleading guilty, despite committing no crime.

SFP will continue to work with lawyers to determine where Thaer has been taken and secure his speedy release. We ask all people at this time to step up the pressure for a free Palestine: free from Occupation, siege, aggression and internment.

اعتقلت قوات الاحتلال صباح اليوم الشاب ثائر ناصر نجار 22 عاما من قرية بورين على حاجز طيار اقيم على مدخل القرية حيث اقتياده الى جه غير معلومة حتى الان بعد ان تم تفتيش سارته

29/07/14: SFP continues to show solidarity with Gaza, visiting Gazans

Just as SFP activists did the previous day, on the second day of Eid Al-Fitr, activists visited Al Arabe hospital in Nablus to pay respects to two Gazans being treated at the hospital. Activists listened to their stories of horror and pledged to the two women that they would remain active, working for a free Palestine and an end to Israeli impunity.

Umunarwar Bachtite (39 years old) and Leila Sultan (50 years old from Khan Younis) had both undergone open heart surgery at the hospital, arriving in Nablus before the current Israeli massacre. They had left behind their families and friends, unable to travel to western Palestine and could only watch the horror unfolding on television.

Umunarwar is from the devastated Shujjaiya neighbourhood, which was the site of a massacre last week. Umunarwar’s home was destroyed in the bombing and her family have now joined the 10% of the Gazan population defined as ‘Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)”.

So far, more than 1,100 people Palestinians have been murdered by Israel. The UN said yesterday that 229 of the victims have been children but more have reportedly been killed since. Last night Israeli bombardment was at it’s worse since the attack began. In addition, in the West Bank area of Palestine Alaa’ Jihad Al-Zghir (21 years old from Idhna, Hebron) succumbed to his wounds inflicted by the Israeli Army 9 days ago and died today.

SFP asks everyone around the world to join the Palestinian struggle for freedom. We particularly asks that even when Palestine is no longer headline news, people remain on the streets and demand an end to the illegal Occupation and Israeli impunity from war crimes prosecutions.

28/07/14: Burin attacked by Army and settlers on the first day of Eid

On the first day of Eid, and when the children were trying to draw a smile on their face despite their pain and suffering, dozens of illegal settlers from the Bracha colony attacked the village of Burin, just south of Nablus. The young people of the village bravely defended against the attack despite the arrival of the Israeli Army to support the attacking settlers by firing volleys of tear gas, stun grenades and live ammunition. The attack went on for 2 hours.

As Burin was under attack the Israeli Army also fired rockets as a group of children playing during a rare respite in Gaza. The attack murdered 9 of the children and 1 adult. Their only crime to want to be children for a few moments.

SFP appeals to people all over the world to join the struggle for freedom. We also ask that those around the world that have already taken to the streets in solidarity remain in the streets until Palestine is free and the refugees have returned to their homes. Finally, we ask that our Muslim brothers and sisters to consider limiting their Eid celebrations in respect for those killed and under illegal siege and occupation.

 

في اول ايام عيد الفطر السعيد و عندما كان الاطفال يحاولون رسم الابتسامة على وجههم رغم الالم و المعاناة هاجم عشرات المستوطنين من مستوطنة براخا قرية بورين من الجنوب من مدينة نابلس حيث دارت اشتباكات عنيفة مع الشبان حيث تدخل الجيش و بداء باطلاق وابل من قنابل الغاز و الصوتيات و بعض الاحيان الرصاص الحي استمرت الاشتباكات لمدة ساعتين متواصله حيث استبسل شباب القرية في الدفاع عن قريتهم SFP تناشد الناس في جميع أنحاء العالم للانضمام إلى النضال من أجل الحرية. نطلب أيضا أن أولئك في جميع أنحاء العالم التي اتخذت بالفعل إلى الشوارع تضامنا تبقى في الشوارع حتى فلسطين الحرة واللاجئين من العودة إلى ديارهم. أخيرا نطلب أن الإخوة والأخوات لدينا مسلم في جميع أنحاء العالم تحد من احتفالات العيد في احترام تلك يقتلون وتحت الحصار غير القانوني والمهنة.

28/07/14: SFP visits injured Gazans on Eid Al-Fitr

SFP activists, accompanied by international supporters, visited injured Gazans at An-Najah National University Hospital in Nablus on the first day of the Muslim holiday of Eid Al-Fitr. SFP spoke to their families and heard their stories of horror, extending their solidarity and respect to Gaza and all Palestinians suffering due to the illegal Occupation of their land.

An-Najah hospital has taken in 2 Gazans injured due to the Israeli attacks. Doctors stated they are expecting a further 5 either later today or tomorrow.

12 year old Musa Shaadi Masardiq was transferred to the hospital 2 days ago after sustaining life threatening injuries in an Israeli bombardment of his home neighbourhood of Maghazi 5 days previously. Musa underwent an operation yesterday and is in life support, unable to breath on his own. He was hit in the lower abdomen destroying his colon, intestine and several damaging all his organs. The next 48 hours are critical for little Musa as he struggled to live. SFP activists spoke to his mother, who was the only family member given permission to travel with Musa, and her face spoke a thousand words. She also told SFP that she still has 4 other children in Gaza and fears for their safety.

67 year old Fatima Odet was transferred to Nablus on 21 July from central Gaza. She was injured due to the Israeli bombardment and is suffering multiple injuries: hip fracture; fracture of 7 ribs; large laceration across her forehead from falling debris; and multiple trauma. The doctor explained they fear for any internal bleeding. Fatima was awake and able to speak to SFP, who passed on their best wishes for her speedy recovery and their absolute unwavering solidarity with Gaza.

An-Najah is also treating 6 Gazan cancer patients. 19 year old Muhammad Barka from Khan Younis was transferred on 26 June. As well as his cancer the doctors were also able to operate on his knee, where he had an old gun shot wound from previous Israeli massacres.

Activists also visited the Zachikia family from Zeitoun area. Zachikia’s wife explained how they had to wait for months to get permission from Israel, which maintains a total blockade around Gaza, to transfer to the West Bank for her husbands vital cancer treatment. Only his wife was given permission to make the journey with him. They are from the Zeitoun area of Gaza near to the residential neighbourhood of Shujaiyya, the site of an Israeli massacre last week and now virtually destroyed. Zachikia and his wife spoke about how several of their family members had lost their homes in the relentless Israeli bombardment.

SFP paid their respects to the doctors at An-Najah hospital, who work tirelessly to treat the sick and injured. SFP also extends that respect to all Palestinians doctors and medical workers, particularly those in Gaza that are working around the clock to treat the thousands and thousands of injured. This is on top of the fact that the hospitals in Gaza are being targeted by the Israeli Army, which has already bombed 4 of the main hospitals. The protection and safety of medical workers should be sacrosanct as stated under international law.

Israel’s deliberate targeting of Palestinian medical workers and medical facilities add to the list of war crimes the Occupation commits with impunity. SFP asks medical workers and particularly trade unions and their representative bodies around world to show solidarity with Gazan doctors and demand an end to the targeting of Palestinian medical workers and facilities and the bringing to justice of war criminals.

 

 

27/07/14: Eid Al-Fitr courtesy of the Israeli Army: report from Burin

As Burin village sat down to break their last days fast before the start of the Muslim festival of Eid Al-Fitr, the Israeli Army invaded the village. The youth of the village defended against the attack, burning tyres to prevent the Army reaching the centre of the village. The resistance continued for 2 hours before the Army were forced to retreat.

At the same time as Burin village came under attack the Israeli Army continues to pound Gaza. After Israel’s refusal of a further humanitarian truce, the Army murdered another 24 Palestinians in Gaza. The murder continues.

SFP implores people around the world to join the struggle for freedom. We also ask that those around the world that have already taken to the streets in solidarity remain on the streets until Palestine is free and the refugees are able to return home. Finally we kindly ask that our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world limit their Eid celebrations in respect for those being murdered and under illegal siege and Occupation.

في ليلة العيد و عند استعداد اهالي قرية بورين لاستقبال عيد الفطر السعيد حاولت خمس جيبات من جيش الاحتلال اقتحام القرية و حصل مواجهات بين الشبان و الجنود بعدما قام الشبان باغلاق كافة الطرق حتى لا يتمكن الجيش من الدخول الى القرية حيث استمر الاشتباكات اكثر من ساعتين انسحب الجيش من القرية و لم يتمكن من الدخول الى وسط البلد

SFP تناشد الناس في جميع أنحاء العالم للانضمام إلى النضال من أجل الحرية. نطلب أيضا أن أولئك في جميع أنحاء العالم التي اتخذت بالفعل إلى الشوارع تضامنا تبقى في الشوارع حتى فلسطين الحرة واللاجئين من العودة إلى ديارهم. أخيرا نطلب أن الإخوة والأخوات لدينا مسلم في جميع أنحاء العالم تحد من احتفالات العيد في احترام تلك يقتلون وتحت الحصار غير القانوني والمهنة.

On Sunday afternoon activists from SFP marched to the central square in Nablus to take their message to the people:

We are all Gaza: No Eid while everyday Shaheed (martyrs)

The activists chanted slogans in support of Gaza and asked the people of Nablus to show respect and cancel the upcoming Eid celebrations. They also sang liberation songs to the crowd that gathered.

Following the demonstration in the central square the activists then proceeded to Huwwara village, just south of Nablus, to pay their respects to the families of the two martyrs murdered on Friday 25 July.

Khaled Azmi Khaled Yousef, 18, was murdered, and three were injured on Friday when an Israeli settler drove by and opened fire at a protest march. The Army then arrived on the scene and shot dead Tayeb Abu Shehada, 22 years old.

After a short ceasefire Israel has resumed its massacre of the Palestinians of Gaza. To date 1,014 have been murdered, of whom 832 are civilians, including 221 children and 121 women. 4,706 have been wounded, mostly civilians, including 1,263 children and 939 women. Over 160,000 forcibly displaced and 561 homes targets and destroyed.

26/07/14: We are all Gaza: No Eid, while everyday Shaheed (martyr)

Today, as everyday since the massacre began, SFP and the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees (UPWC) marched on Huwwara checkpoint. Army jeeps were stationed on the illegal settlement road adjacent to the checkpoint and attacked the activists, which included a majority of women. The Army fired volleys of tear gas and several activists suffered tear gas inhalation. Two activists were also hit with rubber coated steel bullets fired directly at activists.

SFP and UPWC will not be intimidated. The activists were clear, they stated:

We are all Gaza: No Eid, while everyday there are martyrs.

SFP and UPWC faced the Occupation for all the martyrs, including those murdered in Huwwara village yesterday. The funeral of the two young men took place shortly before the activists marched on Huwwara checkpoint. As well as more than 1,000 dead in Gaza, at least 6,000 people have been injured. The UN said more than 160,000 people had sought shelter in its buildings, and thousands more had fled their homes to stay with relatives and friends in what are thought to be safer areas. 8 Palestinians in the West Bank area of Palestine have been murdered and hundreds injured as the Army opens fire on solidarity demonstrations across Palestine.

SFP has been stepping up its resistance to the illegal Occupation, determined to face the war criminals and not just demand justice but take it. SFP and UPWC have jointly been imploring all Palestinians and people around the world to join the struggle. We particularly welcome and encourage women, who have been leading the resistance in SFP.

26/07/14: The Northern West Bank continues to resist: reports from Huwwara checkpoint and Beit Furik

On Friday evening/ Saturday morning activists from SFP joined youth at Huwwara checkpoint to face the Occupation. The Army were firing volleys of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets at the youth. Fortunately no one was seriously injured. The night before several youth, including SFP  activists, had been hit with the bullets.

In Beit Furik, just east of Nablus, the invading Army were met with strong resistance from the villagers. Several youth were injured and dozens suffered suffocation from tear gas inhalation.

الان على حاجز بيت فوريك شرقي نابلس مواجهات  بين شبان البلده وقوات الاحتلال … ويوجد اصابات اختناق بالغاز لعدد من الشبان غير معروف

This comes as the death toll in Gaza reached 867 and 8 murdered in the West Bank, and thousands injured in Gaza. Dozens have also been injured in the West Bank as the Army opened fire with live ammunition.

The pictures below are representative as SFP had our camera stolen by the Israeli Army yesterday. Please see the report here. We want to thank all those that have donated money to our brothers and sisters in Gaza.
