Night Raid on Bil'in 30-06-2010.wmv
In the small hours of this night, around 3 am, Israeli Occupation Forces raided the village of Bil'in to effect the political arrest of villager; Yasir Maher Yasseen who, happily evaded their clutches yet again. The IOF have a long history of harassing and jailing this young activist and excepting the kidnapping of 13 year old Fadi Al-Khatib on the 4th of this month and the terrorising of a false confession out of him, this raid comes after a relatively long hiatus (22-05-2010 was the last military incursion into the village) and may be a harbinger for a spate of further terrorising raids to come.? Ashrah Abu Rahmah, brother of Bassem who the IOF murdered on 17-04-2009 at a peaceful protest at the nearby Apartheid-Annexation Wall, distinguished himself yet again with his relentless and brave efforts to breach the IOF cordon around the home of Yasir. Bil'in salutes him.
Bil'in: Israeli Occupation Forces Raid Village 30-06-2010
For the past five weeks, Bil'in was an Israeli Occupation Forces free zone, last night, however, the ugly face of the Occupation manifested itself again when the IOF violated the peace of the village and reentered in strength at 3 am in a vain attempt to arrest Yasir Maher Yaseen. Mission unaccomplished, they motored off disgruntled and cursing, no doubt hell bent on returning to finish their dirty business, perhaps tonight.? Whilst there, brave Ashraf Abu Rahmah repeatedly challenged them by attempting to break through the cordon of aggressive soldiers around the home of Yasir and received rough handling as a result.
