26/07/14: The Northern West Bank continues to resist: reports from Huwwara checkpoint and Beit Furik

On Friday evening/ Saturday morning activists from SFP joined youth at Huwwara checkpoint to face the Occupation. The Army were firing volleys of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets at the youth. Fortunately no one was seriously injured. The night before several youth, including SFP  activists, had been hit with the bullets.

In Beit Furik, just east of Nablus, the invading Army were met with strong resistance from the villagers. Several youth were injured and dozens suffered suffocation from tear gas inhalation.

الان على حاجز بيت فوريك شرقي نابلس مواجهات  بين شبان البلده وقوات الاحتلال … ويوجد اصابات اختناق بالغاز لعدد من الشبان غير معروف

This comes as the death toll in Gaza reached 867 and 8 murdered in the West Bank, and thousands injured in Gaza. Dozens have also been injured in the West Bank as the Army opened fire with live ammunition.

The pictures below are representative as SFP had our camera stolen by the Israeli Army yesterday. Please see the report here. We want to thank all those that have donated money to our brothers and sisters in Gaza. While Gaza of course must remain all our priority if you were able to donate towards buying a new camera we would be very grateful. It is really the only weapon we have against the Army. Or please share this appeal with your friends and colleagues. You can donate using our PayPal account (tax deductible for American citizens) here.
