Palestine-Israel: The third Intifada collects momentum - this week with prisoners at its center

Middle EastIn spite of the reluctant of the Palestinian ruling elite, the third Intifada collect
momentum. In Hebron, the pictures of the Shuhada yearly joint action show a chain of
Palestinian Authority soldiers blocking the Palestinian demonstrators from clashing with the Israeli state force. However, the general mounting tension, the long hunger striking prisoners, the initiatives of the popular comities... and the Israeli "punishments" together with settler colonialists terror actions feed the gradual escalation. It is not sure yet if it will explode like a powder keg which got a spark or just escalate gradually. The regular locations of joint week end struggle persist with some new ones not yet regular.

"Clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli Army/border police are taking place in
several locations across the West Bank including Jerusalem, Ofer concentration camp,
Qalandiya, Hebron (Shuhada street), Bethlehem, Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarem, villages of
popular resistance (Bil'in), Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Jayyus, Qaddum, Ma'asara)and other
locations. Dozens of injuries and several arrests reported."

This Friday too many Bil'in activists went to demonstrate in Hebron and in front of Ofer
prison. Thus, the demo was small, but even a peaceful march escorted by Hanna's lovely
trumpet suffered several rounds of gas. In the meantime, further south, a handful of
shabab was busy climbing the wall, and diverting the soldiers' attention with stones

"Today's demonstration in NabiSaleh has begun, protesters started to march towards the

"The people of Jayyous invite you to join our weekly demonstrations againstthe re-routing
of the wall further into Jayyous land. The new rout of the wall is in violation of
Israel's own supreme court, which in 2009 decided it should be moved to theso-called
Green Line. The work on the new rout has already begun, and it will annex 300 Dunams of
Jayyous land, uprooting over a 1000 olive trees. Additionally, settlers have placed 6
caravans, expanding the Tsofim settlement on our land. We are asking every one of you to
come and be part of our popular resistance to reclaim our land and its dignity.
See you at the Jayyous main mosque, Friday after prayer."

International activists, marched from the center of the village towards thefence located
on the outskirts of Jayyous.
Soon after protesters reached the area, Israeli army and border police started to shoot
tear gas canisters at the crowd. As clashes erupted, Israeli forces chased the
demonstrators through the fields while shooting more tear gas canisters, making them run
back and forward. One of the protesters was hit by a tear gas canister in his back and was
taken away by an ambulance. Confrontations lasted until sunset.

Friday. Over 100 residents from Kufr Qaddum, together with Israeli activists, participated
in today’s demonstration, dedicated to Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike. After
midday prayers, protesters marched from the center of the village up the main road leading
to Qedumim settlement. Confrontations erupted between demonstrators and Israeli forces,
which shot large quantities of tear gas canisters, resulting in dozens of protesters
suffering from suffocation. The demonstration finished at around 2pm, when Palestinian
