Action Alert - Call The DCO


Action Alert - Call The DCO (District Coordinating Office)

[Jayyous, QALQILIA] At 2:00AM Wednesday morning as many as 50-60 Israeli soldiers entered the West Bank village of Jayyous, where they raided homes, hit villagers with their weapons and arrested six men. They ransacked the homes of six families and stole all of the family members' cell phones, and in one case, papers and photographs. A family member of one of the arrested men said, "They came in and treated us like animals." The Israeli soldiers claimed they were "looking for weapons." NONE WERE FOUND.

At least 40 soldiers entered the Salim home. The family members were blindfolded and handcuffed. The home was searched three times by different groups of soldiers. When one of the family members asked the soldiers why they entered his house, a soldier hit him with the end of an M16 rifle and he was forced and held to the ground. After three and a half hours, they then arrested the eldest brother, Haitham Saleem and confiscated all of the family's cell phones. Haitham is a 34 year old shopkeeper who is not involved in any political activity. He has a heart condition and it is vital that he take medication.

The soldiers then ransacked the the house directly next to the Salim family home and forced all the women and children out into the streets at 2:30AM.

More than a dozen soldiers then went to the home of Wajdi Musleh. After breaking in and tearing through the house, the soldiers forced all of the women and children into one room, and pulled aside an elder in his 70's blindfolding and handcuffing him. They then forced him to kneel on the floor and hit him. The parents' bed was destroyed in this process. The soldiers then forced 21 year old Wajdi into the courtyard and arrested him.

The soldiers used a bomb to open the front door of the home of Adam and Ziad Harami. After ransacking the home, breaking open one of the doors and leaving it inoperable, they told the whole family, "If you do not give us all of your phones we will damage your whole house." They arrested dam Harami, a 20 year old student at Al Najah University in Nablus and Ziad Harami, a 25 year old barber from the village of Jayyous.

The soldiers then tore through the homes of Shadi Towfiq Mahmoud Saleem and Abdel Rahim, damaging many items in the homes. They arrested Shadi, a 21 year old computer student at the Arab American University in Jenin.

The soldiers damaged the front door when entering the home of Ahmed Mohammed Towfiq Yousef Khaled. They 'searched' the home and stole pictures of the family. They arrested Ahmed, a 21 year old Economics student at Al Najah University in Nablus.

Please call the DCO and demand the IMMEDIATE release of these men.
