The village of Nabi Saleh, home to ordinary Palestinian families, has peacefully resisted Israel’s ongoing confiscation of their land for years. On Friday, the community was shattered by the senseless death of yet another of their own at the hands of Israeli forces.

Israel has sentenced Ahed Tamimi’s older brother Waed to 14 months in prison for allegedly throwing stones – just the latest Tamimi family member to be imprisoned, maimed, or killed by Israel.
Ahed Tamimi slapped an IDF soldier in Dec 2017, was arrested & pled guilty to 1 count of assault in a plea bargain, & is free after 8 months in prison.
Mohammad Tamimi, 15-yr-old cousin of Ahed Tamimi, wants to live his life (with 1/3 of his skull missing). Israeli forces shot him in the head; now apparently they want him behind bars.
Israel has detained Mohammad Tamimi, a minor who Israeli forces shot in the face last December, for the 2nd time since the shooting.
One of the most dangerous places in the world for children is the occupied Palestinian territories where, in the last year, at least 20 Palestinian children have been killed and over 1,000 others injured by Israeli forces. Gaza’s 1 million children are especially at risk, as food, medicine, and electricity are in short supply, and 97% of drinking water contaminated. The world has Israel to thank for this man-made humanitarian crisis.
Two young Palestinian men, Abdul-Khaliq Burnat and Mohammed Tamimi, had their day in (Israeli military) court last weekend. They have much in common: they both come from prominent nonviolent activist families, both are victims – along with their families and entire towns – of collective punishment, and it looks like neither young man will be going home anytime soon.
The first Palestinian death of 2018 is a teenage boy – a relative of Ahed Tamimi, who was arrested after slapping a soldier who had shot her cousin in the face. Her mother and another female cousin were also arrested.
Israeli forces imprison 16-year-old Palestinian girl, her mother, and her cousin – after shooting another cousin in the face
Mohammed is 14 and in a coma from being shot in the face. Now 2 of his female cousins and his aunt are in prison. Because in occupied Palestine, Israel takes revenge on the victim.
