This picture was taken in 99', when Occupation soldiers placed 700 of my neighbors on trucks, with everything they had in the world, and deported them. Now they decided to do it again, only this time, it'll be 2,000 people. Time passes, apartheid stays the same. #SaveMasaferYatta

Germany banned Nakba day protests. They then arrested 170 people. Some were protestors, a lot were bystanders quietly trying to show support for Palestine. ‚ÄúI had to be hospitalized,‚ÄĚ @MajedAbusalama said. Here is my latest report for @972mag 972mag.com/berlin-palestinia‚Ķ

It's maddening that Berlin police banned any and all Nakba Day-related events, and then proceeded to arrest *170 people* who participated in a quick show of protest. The fact that this went virtually unreported is just as maddening. @hebh_jamal reports: 972mag.com/berlin-palestinia…

Barely breathing from the toxic gas occupation soldiers shot at us. Around 80 people, in Masafer Yatta, came to peacfuly protest the ethnic cleansing that is done here. Soldiers shot shock grenades, gas, and hit several journalists. We must come again next week. #SaveMasaferYatta

The video of Israeli soldiers protecting settlers as they remove Palestinian flags from *inside* a Palestinian city is only the tip of the iceberg. We saw a far more violent version of settler-soldier collusion last May. There's nothing stopping a repeat. 972mag.com/joint-attacks-isr…

Long before Israel paved road networks to maintain the separation of Jews and Palestinians, the British occupation authorities had already laid their foundations for segregation between the river and the sea. 972mag.com/british-mandate-b…
