11/02/14: Israeli Army invade Nablus and kidnap 19 year old Ismail Aukal

In the early hours of Tuesday morning the Israeli Army invaded the Old City of Nablus and kidnapped 19 year old Ismail Aukal. The soldiers entered Ismail’s home, after exploding the door, with dogs and terrorised the family, ransacking the house and destroying the families property. Ismail’s mother, Rewida Aukal (Um Rasmi) said:

“See, the whole house is broken and for no reason.”

Ismail had just been released by Apartheid Israel 4 months previously and has been kidnapped on 3 times. Um Rasmi spoke of her tiredness with the nighttime terrorism from the Army. Um Rasmi refused to let the soldiers take her son again, and so they shut her mother and Ismail’s sister in a room and beat Ismail. Um Rasmi was subjected to hearing her son’s cries of pain.

After an hour the soldiers withdrew leaving behind their trail of destruction and terror. Ismail’s four year old brother was left traumatized by the destruction caused by the Army entering and terrorising his home and family. In a process that has become all to familiar for Um Rasmi, she called the Red Cross and, Ministry of Prisoner Affairs and local Radio stations to inform them of the events and to try to ascertain where Ismail was being held. Um Rasmi summed this up by saying:

“We no longer look forward to his release, after his second arrest. It was not even a year before they came again to take him and our last period of peace was 20 months, then they come again without warning.”

Um Rasmi had lost another young son to cancer and suffers herself from impaired mobility. She is deprived from visiting her son as he is held, in contravention of international law, in Apartheid prisons outside the West Bank of Palestine and she is unable to get the permission to enter historical Palestine.

Despite being in so-called Area A under the failed Oslo Accords, the Army nightly invade Nablus and kidnap residents. Palestinians are usually held in solitary confinement and often tortured for weeks before they have any access to a lawyer, see a Judge or their family know where they are. ‘Confessions’ have usually been extracted by the time they appear before a Judge and therefore Palestinian lawyers are left with little choice but to negotiate the least penalty possible, as guilt is already presumed.

There is currently around 5000 Palestinians being held in Apartheid prisons. SFP has been supporting prisoners and their families and will continue to do so until they are all free. We ask our international friends to please keep writing to their respective representatives demanding they apply pressure to Apartheid Israel to cease arrests of Palestinians, and free all prisoners. In addition, and in the absence of the application of international law, we ask all supporters of justice to abide by the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) request from grassroots Palestinian society.  For more details on how to boycott and how to raise awareness of BDS please click here.

لم تشفع حال المواطنة رويدة عوكل (ام رسمي) المقعدة والقاطنة في ازقة البلدة القديمة ان يعود “زوار الليل” يتخطفوا نجلها الوحيد ويعيثون في المنزل خرابا، لتعيش حكاية الاسر والسجن مجددا للمرة الثالثة.

كانت الساعة تقترب من الثانية فجرا من اليوم الثلاثاء 11-2 عدما دوى انفجار حطم مدخل المنزل الواقع في احد الاحواش في شارع الخان التجاري ليتحول المنزل الى مرتفع لجنود الاحتلال الاسرائيلي والكلاب المفترسة ليكون الهدف ابنها اسماعيل 19 عاما الذي لم يمض على اطلاق سراحه 4 اشهر.

كانت ام رسمي متعبة من الزيارة الليلية وتهديدات الجنود مشيرة الى غرفتيها” انظر كل البيت محطم ولا يوجد شيء على حاله” منوهة الى ان اسماعيل مسك بها ورفض ان يتوجه مع الجنود مما حدا بهم الى سحبه بقوة واغلقوا الغرفة عليها وعلى ابنتها ثم انهالوا عليه بالضرب والصراخ.

بعد قرابة الساعة من التحقيق الميداني والتخريب انسحب الجنود تاركين خلفهم دمارا نفسيا وتخريبا في كل محتويات المنزل فيما بدأت ام رسمي البحث عن ارقام الصليب الاحمر ووزارة الاسرى ونادي الاسير والاذاعات التي تبث برامج للاسرى لتبدأ مسيرة جديدة من التعب والمتابعة.

وتقول ام رسمي ” لم نعد ننهفي فرحتنا بالافراج عنه بعد اعتقال ثان دام سنة ونصف سبق اعتقال اخر دام 20 شهرا ليأتي الاعتقال الثالث فجرا دون سابق انذار”.

وتعاني والدة الاسير اسماعيل من اعاقة حركية وفقدت نجلها البكر بالسرطان وهو في ريعان الشباب ولديها ثلاث بنات تزوجت اثنتين فيما الثالثة تعيش معها.

واخترق حديث مع ام رسمي لهو الطفل مصطفى عوكل ابن الأربع سنوات (ابن زوجها) الذي صدم من هول الاثاث المحطم والفراش الملقى هنا وهناك. وبسبب وضع ام رسمي فانها محرومة من زيارة نجلها وهو بالسجن حيث تقوم جدته بالزيارة بالعادة.
