IOF Invades Bil'in

If you're Palestinian, you're not safe in your own home; practising the methods of Gandhi will net one rubber bullets, stun grenades, tear gas cannisters, hits with rifle butts, army invasions of homes; the methods of a brutal colonist army carrying out the orders of a heinous and merciless government with an Arab killer at its helm. Nothing new there, though.

Saed Bannoura of IMEC reports:

Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday evening, Bil’in village near the West Bank city of Ramallah, and forced the residents and peace activisms out of the homes.

Twenty military jeeps and dozens of soldiers on foot invaded the village, for the third night and conducted house-to-house search, International Solidarity Movement reported.

Dozens of residents, Israeli and international peace activists present in the village, poured out of the homes and chanted against the occupation and the Israeli procedures.

Soldiers withdrew from the village leaving behind a list of “wanted” Palestinian peace activists from the village.

Abdullah Abu Rahma, coordinator of Popular Committee against the Wall, said that the non-violence resistance against the occupation, wall and settlements will continue “even if the soldiers continue arresting our sons, and use their weapons against us”.
