ACTNews, WEST BANK – the Israeli forces continue to oppress and abuse civilians in Palestine, especially in Jerusalem and West Bank. According to the data gathered by Aksi Cepat Tanggap from various sources, the act of violence took place in Silwan City on Sunday (5/30/2021).
A Palestinian child namely Jawad Abbasi was treated like a prisoner. He was pulled and mobbed by six fully-armed Israeli forces as if the child had committed a grave crime. In fact, Jawad only put a Palestinian flag on his bicycle.
Another child namely Mohammad Hajj Yahya from Al Tayyabeh was arrested and brutally beaten by the Israeli forces while protesting against the massive detention of Palestinians some time ago.
Not only abusing children, Israeli forces also deported an Al-Aqsa Mosque keeper, Mukhtar Al Qadi for four months and arrested journalists who were covering a solidarity action in Sheikh Al Jarrah area. One of the journalists is Zaina Mazen Halwani who is currently undergoing an appeal hearing after being rejected by the Israeli court beforehand. She is now in danger of being imprisoned.
“We are the children of great Palestinian people. We love this country,” said Zaina Mazen Halawani.
According to the latest news, currently, the Israeli occupation is planning to destroy historical buildings in Lifta. Lifta is one of the uninhabited villages in Jerusalem. Its residents were forcibly evicted by Israeli forces in 1948. The Israeli authorities will destroy existing buildings in the area to build new elite areas in their stead.
