At around 20:00 on Wednesday evening the Israeli Army invaded Burin, just south of Nablus, terrifying residents. The Army ransacked several homes and detained the 15 year old child Saddam Rustam Tirawi for 3 hours and kidnapped 21 year old Mohammed Mashour Najjar, after beating him.
The Army invaded under the pretext of searching for youths which had defended their school against an attack and attempted invasion by the Army last week (see our two reports here and here). They terrorised the residents and children entering homes and firing sound bombs to scare.
Burin, which is surrounded by the illegal settlements of Yitzhar and Bracha, is subjected to daily Army and settler terrorism. Last year alone Burin lost over 1,400 olive trees to settler attacks and nearly 500 almond trees.
Mohammed’s arrest brings the total to 15 villagers currently being held in Apartheid Israeli prisons. Many of those prisons are supplied by companies such as the UK/ Dutch company G4S. We ask our international friends and supporters to join the grassroots Palestinian movement requesting boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Apartheid Israel. This is a tangible way you can help make a difference, in the face of international Government’s complicity in Apartheid Israel’s war crimes, and make it clear that Apartheid is not acceptable. For more details of how you can boycott and how to get involved in the campaign please click here.
