At 1am in the morning on Wednesday 22 January 2014 Burin, just south of Nablus, was invaded by the Israeli Army. The Army arrested 20 year old Essam Najjar and terroized his family, vadlaising their home.
The Army came in the early hours of the morning and surrounded the home of Mamoun Rajah Najjar. The soldiers terrorised the family, destroying property and terrifying the the whole family including Essam’s young sisters. They then arrested Essam, Mamoun’s eldest son.
This is the second time Essam has been kidnapped by the Army. The last time he was imprisoned for 6 months. Essam’s family do not know where he has been taken or for what reason.
The village of Burin is constantly suffering terrorism from illegal settlers that surround the village, and the Israeli Army. To date their are 12 men from Burin being held in Israeli Apartheid prisons, where torture and ill treatment are widespread by Israel.
SFP kindly asks our international friends to keep writing and maintaining pressure on their respective representatives to act to stop Apartheid Israel’s unlawful terror and kidnapping campaign against Palestinians. SFP will continue to support villagers in Burin and all prisoners until they are free. For details on how to join SFP and support our activities, please click here.
