Soldiers Attack Internationals & Palestinians

Internationals And Palestinians Attacked By Israeli Soldiers

[NABLUS] Dozens of Palestinians and approximately 30 internationals have been attacked by Israeli soldiers in Til, near Nablus of the West Bank.

Since 6:00 this morning the group has been working with their hands to remove three large roadblocks closing off the villages of Iraq Bureen and Til, south of Nablus. The action is part of the International Solidarity Movement's Freedom Summer Palestine Campaign and efforts to highlight Palestinian imprisonment and lack of freedom of movement.

Israeli soldiers have taken the Mayor of Til and his colleagues are violently detaining the internationals.

Please help us protest this violence against peaceful protesters by calling the Nablus District Coordinating Office (DCO): +972 2 5486 218 / 217 or +972 2 5486 301 / 302

There is at least one video camera in the area and pictures / video should be available on our website as soon as we can get them up.
