24/07/14: Northern West Bank rises

On Thursday evening activists from SFP accompanied the youth of Sebastiya village as they marched on the illegal settlement of Shave Shomron. Upon arriving the youth threw fireworks towards the illegal settlement to symbolise the Israeli bombs that are currently dropping on Gaza, massacring the people.

The Army fired volley’s of tear gas at the demonstrators and then began to shot live ammunition, low velocity bullets and rubber coated steel bullets directly at demonstrators. 2 youths from the village were shot in the leg and middle chest. They were taken to Rafidia hospital in Nablus where one required an operation to remove the bullet. An SFP international volunteer was hit in the chest and was also taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Later SFP activists also joined demonstrators at Huwwara checkpoint, just south of Nablus. The Army attacked the unarmed protesters and an SFP activist was hit in the leg with a low velocity bullet. He was kept overnight in hospital and released early Friday morning.

Demonstrations erupted across the West Bank overnight as Palestinians took to the streets to face the Occupation who have massacred nearly 800 Palestinians in Gaza. On Thursday the Israeli Army bombed a UN school in Beit Hanoun, which was sheltering nearly 800 Palestinians, mainly women and children. To date 17 were murdered in the bombing, mostly children and hundreds injured as Gazan hospital became overwhelmed with the flood of injuries. In Qalandia, near Ramallah, 1 Palestinian was shot dead and 234 shot with live ammunition as they demonstrated. Several are still in a critical condition this morning.

Palestinians have declared Friday a “Day of Rage”. SFP implores all people to take to the streets and join the struggle for freedom. Now is the time to end the Nakba, and say “no more, no more, no more”.
