Protesters break the siege on Nabi Salih‏

This Friday the Nabi Salih demonstration against the occupation started in the neighboring village Beit Rima, from which a march to Nabi Salih went directly through the army post. Some 60 people marched through the road chanting songs of resistance. The army kept retreating until it stopped near Nabi Salih village and allowed the protesters to pass through and arrive to Nabi Salih. Every Friday the Israeli army blocks all road entrances to Nabi Salih as a collective punishment measure for demonstrating. This time the demonstrators' first act was to break this siege.

After reaching the village, the demonstrators attempted to continue walking through the main street but were violently stopped by the army soldiers using stun grenades. One 10 year old boy was attacked by a soldier with pepper spray. After a while protesters went away from the soldiers. Some youth attempted to ward off the army incursion by stone throwing. The army took control of several roofs in the village, and used tear gas extensively inside the village populated area. Some youth managed to escape the army grip on the village and clashed with soldiers in the surrounding hills.
