Batn al-Hawah incidents, Jerusalem

Print PDF

Affidavit by: Abdallah Ahmad Salem Abu Nab

Age: 54

"On Sunday June 27, 2010, one of the security agents responsible for guarding the settler house al-Assal house repeated his harassments to the Palestinian girls in the area. He pointed with his middle finger to a girl from Rajabi Family. Consequently, family of the girl called the commander of the Israeli military patrol which is stationed in the area. However, he suggested to the family to file a complaint.

The incident took place after noon prayers. The angry Palestinian youth said that they knew how to acquire the rights with their own hands. At around 8:00 p.m. while the security guard was leaving the settlers house, a group of youth attacked him with stones.

He responded by opening fire in the air. Consequently, the military patrol which was deployed in the area arrived at the seen and began to fire tear gas canisters and rubber coated metal bullets towards the youth. As a result, the range of clashes expanded and more Israeli reinforcements arrived at the seen.

During the clashes two gas canisters fell inside home of my nephew Nasser Abu Nab, which caused a small fire inside the house, but its occupants were able to control it. But when one of the family members attempted to enter the house, ten Israeli soldiers followed him and raided its yard. But when the family member closed the door behind him, the soldiers began to smash the windows. Later, the Palestinian youth stormed the yard of the house and clashed with the soldiers who were later forced to leave the yard. The clashes inside the yard of the house lasted for almost tem minutes."
