IDF Destroys Palestinian Protest Village Asra

Israeli forces storm and destroy a protest village in Jenin just north of the West Bank. The camp was located next to the separation wall.

Palestinian activists set up the camp in the village of Anin and called it Asra meaning prisoners.

The move was aimed to express solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners held without charge or trial in Israeli prisons.

Clashes erupted as Israeli forces stormed the village and shot tear gas and rubber bullets at the Palestinians, which caused many injuries. Most of those injures were the result of tear gas inhalation. One Palestinian officer was also injured there.

Soldiers also arrested the brother of a hunger striker Yousef Yassin.

The Al-Asra protest village is the latest move by Palestinian activists to fight back Israeli land annexation.

Although Israel once again tried to destroy this peaceful initiative, the Palestinian non-violent resistance is gradually gaining momentum as activists continue to set up more protest tents throughout the West Bank.

In the early hours of the morning, the Israeli army raided and demolished the modest infrastructure of the new Palestinian village of Bab al-Karama. In an attempt to deter the Israeli army from confiscating more of their land, residents from Beit Iksa village and several activists had flocked to the area due for confiscation and set up a village on Friday and named it Bab al-Karama (Gate of Dignity).

About 100 activists and organizers of the Bab al-Karama initiative staged a protest. Dozens more who flocked to the area to join in were blocked by the Israeli army.

The small village of Beit Iksa along with several neighboring villages located on the outskirts of Jerusalem were previously subjected to large scale land confiscations by the Israeli military during the construction of the segregation wall. When the wall is complete, it will strip the village from 60 percent of its agricultural land.

For years, Beit Iksa residents accessed their village through only one gate, and that is an Israeli army checkpoint. The residents have recently received notifications from the Israeli army announcing its intent on confiscating more of their land.

Since this initiative started the Israeli military has already closed all access to the area and declared it a closed military zone.

“The military has already approached us a few times but every time they come, we make a human chain and chanting national songs and they’ve left us alone so far, but we don’t know when they will forcibly kick us out.’ Osama had said.

Earlier this week, activists had set up another tent village on the outskirts of Jerusalem, an area the Israeli army had dubbed ‘E1’ zone and was set to build yet another illegal settlement on Palestinian land in an effort to virtually cut off the West Bank cities from Jerusalem.

The activists had named their new village Bab al-Shams – which translates to Gate of the Sun, but soon after the Israeli army attacked them in the early hours of the morning with around 500 of soldiers and dragged them out of the area injuring a few and declaring the area a military zone.

The Israeli military has forcibly evacuated a protest camp set up by Palestinian and foreign activists at a site designated for new illegal settlement units.

Israeli forces early Sunday clashed with some 200 activists who had set up makeshift tents in the occupied West Bank to prevent Tel Aviv from building new settler units.

“Hundreds of Israeli police came from all directions, surrounding all those who were in the tents and arresting them one by one,” Palestinian legislator Mustafa Barghouti said.

Palestinian protesters said that at least six activists were wounded in the attack.

On Saturday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the closure of roads leading to the site.

Netanyahu’s office said on Saturday that the regime petitioned the Supreme Court to rescind an earlier ban blocking the evacuation, allowing it to use force against activists.

On Friday, the activists set up more than 20 tents in the controversial E1 area between the occupied east al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim to support the rights of Palestinian land owners.

The development of E1 area will bisect the West Bank by effectively cutting off the West Bank from east Al-Quds.

Israel has been globally condemned for pursuing the building of thousands of illegal settler homes on occupied Palestinian land.

Last month, Israeli officials said they would go ahead with plans to build 6,500 settler units on Palestinian territory despite the opposition of the United Nations and the international community.

The presence and also the continued expansion of Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine are major obstacles for the efforts to establish peace in the Middle East.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.

The UN and most countries regard the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured by Israel in a war in 1967 and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbids construction on occupied lands.
