After Israeli army nightly incursion into Kufr Qadum accompanied by massive arrest of villagers , the children of the village have come out in protest with a message to the occupying army and the world: "You Arrested Our Fathers, So We Lead the Demonstration Today". The weekly demonstration has again been brutally suppressed by the army, who blacked all entrances to the village, took hold of a home, made use of the "Skunk", and fired the usual dose of teargas and shock rounds.
Also on the backdrop of continuing night raids , numerous injuries sustained at the weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh. A photographer injured after he was hit in the head by a tear gas projectile shot directly at him by the Israel army. The army doused the participants, homes, and the local gas station with "skunk" water, and fired huge amounts of tear gas projectiles. Journalists were repeatedly attacked by soldiers with physical force. A shock grenade was tossed at local journalist, Bilal Tamimi's feet.
Two delegations from Norway joined the weekly demonstration in Bil'in, protesting the racist policies against Palestinian prisoners and demanding their release. The Israeli army soldiers, situated behind the concrete wall shot rubber bullets , stun grenades, tear gas and waste water mixed with chemicals towards the participants.
