16/06/14: Israel unleashes mass terrorism on the people of Hebron

On Sunday 15 June (ongoing at the time of writing) Apartheid Israel had unleashed a mass terror campaign on the people of Hebron and the southern occupied West Bank area of Palestine. On Thursday evening 3 illegal settlers were allegedly kidnapped while they trespassed on Palestinian land, in an area the Israeli Army fully control (known as Area C under the failed Oslo Accords). Despite the lack of evidence the Israeli Army has unleashed a mass terror and kidnapping campaign against the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank area.  

To date nearly 150 Palestinians have been kidnapped from their homes, a 21 year old man from Al Jalazone refugee camp has been killed and the Gaza Strip has been bombed several times. At the time of writing the southern West Bank is under closure and siege and kidnappings by the Israeli Army are continuing. Apartheid Israel has vowed to escalate further their campaign of terror despite no evidence of the kidnappings of the three illegal settlers. Below is an account from an SFP member in Hebron.

On Sunday 15 June the Israeli Occupation Forces detained the 13 year old child Mohammed Yazouri at the checkpoint between Tel Rumeida neighbourhood and Shuhada Street. Later, led by the criminal settler Anat Cohen, well known for her attacks on Palestinians, illegal settlers attacked the Qakor family in Tel Rumeida. SFP member Imad Abu Shmssih went to assist the family against the terrorist and was himself attacked and his wife was also assaulted as she attempted to film the settlers. 

Palestinians are sadly use to the daily harassment and attacks by the criminal illegal settlers that occupy their city but in recent days the attacks by both soldiers and settlers have become more violent. Imad and his wife were attacked in front of the Israeli Border Police by Anat Cohen and her group, and the police just looked on. The terrorist settler then proceeded to go to Imad’s home and attacked his 15 year old daughter Madeleine. The settler then claimed to the police that Madeleine had attacked her and so the Israeli police arrested both Imad and his daughter. They were taken to Kiryat Arba police station, in the illegal settlement of the same name, and finally released as it was clear Anat Cohen had lied. 

At all the entrances to Hebron there is a heavy presence of Israeli Army, preventing movement in and out of the city. Nightly kidnapping campaigns have been taking place with members of the Palestinian Legislative Council, such as Aziz Dweik, arrested. Today, Monday 16 June, despite this repression shops and businesses closed on strike in solidarity with the Palestinian administrative detainees now on their 54th day on hunger strike. As the Army tried to stifle the support for prisoners they fired tear gas and stun grenades at youth resisting their repression. At the time of writing this report there is still confrontations ongoing.

As SFP we ask people around the world to not allow the media and Israeli Government to hijack the issue and dominate the news with allegations of kidnappings, while there is now hundreds of Palestinians kidnapped by Apartheid Israel and languishing in prisons. Detainees have been held without trial or charge for years and in response and demand for freedom they launched a peaceful hunger strike. Apartheid Israel is determined to use any means possible to suppress the call for freedom from the prisons. We ask you all to hear that call and demand an end to the Occupation and the freedom for all of Palestine.
