Get Out Of My House!

Get Out Of My House!

Internationals released from occupied house near Nablus.

Four foreign nationals (two UK, two USA) who had been held all day in an occupied house have been released without charge. One Palestinian woman was also released during the day after falling ill.

A spokesperson said she and the other three internationals were in good health and relieved to be at liberty once more. She thanked everyone for their support, saying she believed it had definitely had an effect. Previously the military had said they would hold the internationals until they left the house.

Meanwhile, the military occupation and the nightmare for the Palestinians continues.
