The Villager’s Group is an Israeli human rights group. Operation Dove is an Italian peace and human rights NGO that maintains a continuous presence in At Tuwani, a village close to Um Fagarah.
As of Wednesday, both girls were still held under arrest in a Jerusalem jail. According to Rabbi Arik Ascherman of Rabbis’ for Human Rights, “Occupation law allows Palestinians to be held for 96 hours without being brought in front of a judge, and that can be extended for another 96 hours.”
Demolitions throughout the West Bank continue,, with at least one demolition in the Jordan Valley and one demolition near Bethlehem over the last few days.
Peace, Salaam, Shalom,
Jan, my heart goes out to the people of Palistine and to you and your fellow workers for witnessing this. It is difficult for me to watch as I sit comfortably in my warm office. I can’t imagaine how difficult all this is for you and the people living there.
Dear Jan, this is so utterly, utterly shocking. Is it ok to provide a link to your website on mine so that my readers can also follow your stories? I copied your words on the 19-year old girl and then provide a link. People need to know about this.
Marthie. Go ahead and spread this far and wide. You are right. People need to know what’s really happening.
