Sixteen Israeli activists in the struggle against the occupation, most of them in the groups Anarchists Against the Wall and Ta'ayush, were woken by police in the early hours of Sunday morning, 11.11.2012, by police officers who came to their homes. Holding cameras, the police presented the activists (or their parents, roommates, or people currently renting the apartment) with closed military zone orders, applying to parts of the villages of Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, and Qadum, during most daytime hours every Friday, until March 2013. The police demanded that the recipients sign acknowledging receipt of the orders. Several homes were also entered.
The closed military zone orders were signed by the commander of the Israeli Army's Central Command. They are general orders, which apply to all non-residents of the villages, and do not have any specific relevance to the individuals targeted.
Anarchists Against the Wall will continue with our support for and solidarity with the Palestinian popular struggle against the Israeli occupation regardless of this intimidation attempt.
