21/06/14: Day 9 of Apartheid Israel’s terror campaign

Apartheid Israel has unleashed a wave of terror and kidnappings of the Palestinians in the West Bank since 3 illegal settlers allegedly went missing on Thursday 12 June. Last night the Army continued to terrorise villages and cities across the West Bank.

To date nearly 370 Palestinians have been kidnapped from their homes. This brings the total of Palestinians in Israei Apartheid prisons to 5700. Today marks day 58 of Palestinian detainees hunger strike against their internment without trial or charge. The detainees announced that after day 60 they will also be refusing water.

Apartheid Israel has admitted that their ‘campaign’ has wider objects than just the return of the 3 allegedly kidnapped illegal settlers. They have also admitted parts of the current wave of terror was planned prior to the alleged kidnapping. They state their objective is to destroy the Palestinian Hamas movement, democratically elected by the Palestinian people in 2006.

However, the pattern if arrests and arbitrary destruction of property and killings indicate that their objectives are even wider than those admitted to by the Army. As a soldier admitted in Jenin refugee camp, they want to provoke a response from the Palestinians in order to have a pretext to kill. So far 3 Palestinians have been murdered in this current wave of terror from Apartheid Israel. Many more have been injured.

Below is an update from the regions over the last 24 hours. The updates below just represent updates from SFP activists based in those areas. However, there are attacks across the West Bank, Al Quds and Gaza area of Palestine.

Hebron

The Army continue to brutalize and terrorise the city and surrounding areas. On Thursday 19 June they shot dead a 15 year old child, Mahmoud Jihad Muhammad Dudeen, in the village of Dura.

As villagers and Palestinians across the area came to bury Mahmoud the following day, the Army attacked and tried to prevent people joining the march. Despite the Army’s efforts they were unable to prevent thousands joining the funeral march. The Army still attacked the mourners with tear gas and stun grenades.

Helicopters are still in the skies over Hebron and thousands of soldiers are continuing to attack and kidnap Palestinians, destroying property and stealing thousands of dollars in cash from homes.

Ramallah

On Thursday evening the Army invaded Qalandiya refugee camp, on the way to Palestine’s capital city, Al Quds (Jerusalem in English). While attempting to break into homes and kidnap Palestinians the camp put up brave resistance against the terrorist soldiers.

Five Palestinians were shot with live ammunition during the invasion and 23 year old Mustafa Aslan was shot in the head. Palestinian doctors are working very hard to save Mustafa, who is in a critical condition in hospital.

The Army has also been targeting the Birzeit area of Ramallah, including invading and kidnapping students from Birzeit University.

Nablus

They have invaded the city every night and it’s surrounding villages. On Thursday evening the Army invaded the village of Beit Furik to the east of the city. They rounded up residents on mass, holding them in the local school, in actions reminiscent of the Second Intifada. After terrorising hundreds they eventually kidnapped 25 people from the village.

On the same evening they invaded the village of Zwarta, in the west of the city. They were unsuccessful in their attempts to kidnap the released former prisoner Hasan Jodi from his home. However, they did not leave before destroying property in the home and stealing computers.

Last night the Army invaded the centre of Nablus again and the surrounding refugee camps. The Army invaded at around 1am firing tear gas and sound bombs all night until they eventually pulled out at around 04:30am. Several young people were injured in Asker refugee camp, including a young female radio journalist.

Many of those kidnapped are still being held at Huwwara Military camp, just south of Nablus city.

Salfit

The Army invaded the village of Hares last night in Salfit. As they invaded homes a terrorised residents they caused Jamil Ali Abed Jabir, a man in his 60s, to have a heart attack. He died in the hospital later that night.

SFP encourages all people around the world to, if they haven’t previously, voice their support for a free Palestine. Please use social media and the hashtag #bringourboysbackhome to highlight the hypocrisy of the alleged kidnapping of 3 illegal settlers to over 5700 Palestinian political prisoners, many of them children, and the mass terrorism committed against the civilian Palestinian population.
