  Injured 15-year-old Mohammed Tamimi seized by Israeli occupation
  forces with 21 more Palestinians

26 February 2018

*UPDATE: Bilal Tamimi reports that Mohammed Fadel Tamimi, 15,has been 
as of 1 pm CEST! We urge the immediate release of all of his fellow 

Mohammed Fadel Tamimi 
the 15-year-old Palestinian boy previously shot in the face and severely 
wounded by an Israeli occupation soldier’s rubber-coated metal bullet in 
December 2017, was seized by occupation forces in mass raids on the 
village of Nabi Saleh along with his brother and other relatives. 
Twenty-two Palestinians were seized by occupation forces in night 
arrests and early-morning raids throughout occupied Palestine.

Bassem Tamimi 
the father of imprisoned Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi 
whose case has inspired international outrage 
and protests, posted on Facebook that 10 children and youth 
<https://www.facebook.com/BassemTamimi2020/posts/10214314360485203> were 
seized from Nabi Saleh after occupation force attacked the village with 
military armored bulldozers and “skunk water” tanks. Mohammed, 15, was 
seized along with his brother Tamim Fadel Tamimi, 17. Others seied in 
Nabi Saleh were brothers Islam Saleh Tamimi, 19, and Omar Saleh Tamimi, 
30; Suhaib Sameh Tamimi, 28, Wiam Eyad Tamimi, 17, Muayad Hamzeh Tamimi, 
15, Mohammed Mujahed Tamimi, 16, Mohammed Sami Tamimi, 17 and Amjad Abed 
Tamimi, 26.

Elsewhere in occupied Palestine, five young people were seized by 
occupation forces in Nablus <http://asravoice.ps/post/9171/>, including 
Omar Samara, Amid Imad Banat, Zaid al-Banna, Assem Asida and Mahmoud 
Ramadan.  Two more Palestinians, Moatassem Ashmer al-Natsheh, a student 
at Hebron University, and Izzadine Abu Hussein, were seized in 
al-Khalil.  In Jalazone refugee camp <http://asramedia.ps/post/6187/> 
near Ramallah, occupation forces seized Mu’min Abu Aliya, 28, and 
Mohammed Atta al-Nabali. In Shuafat, Jerusalem 
<http://hadfnews.ps/post/38529>, occupation forces seized Nasser Qous, 
the director of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, Shadi Matar and Adel 
Abu Zneid.

Tamimi also reported that the home of Naji Tamimi was raided by 
occupation forces who declared they were looking for his son, Anan; “the 
Shabak officer told him that Nabi Saleh is going to suffer more and to 
expect more brutal attacks,” Tamimi said.

The shooting of Mohammed, 15, happened shortly before Ahed Tamimi 
confronted occupation soldiers on the family’s land, slapping one of 
them (after being slapped herself) and demanding they leave their land. 
Ahed and her mother, Nariman 
who filmed the incident and broadcast it live on Facebook Live, have 
been in prison for over two months for charges related to those events. 
Their imprisonment and targeting for involvement in the indigenous, 
anti-colonial land defense movement in Nabi Saleh has sparked and 
inspired hundreds of protests around the world demanding freedom for 
Ahed, Nariman and their fellow Palestinian prisoners.

Mohammed continues to be in a precarious health situation and is 
scheduled for major surgery in May to replace and repair the missing 
one-third of his skull. Manal Tamimi reported that he is scheduled for 
his next surgical appointment on 3 March. He spent nearly a week in a 
medically induced coma after being shot by occupation forces and was 
previously seized when he was 13 years old. Palestinian children and 
youth seized by occupation forces overwhelmingly report mistreatment, 
torture and abuse, including threats of physical and sexual violence 
against them and their family as well as routine kicking, beating and 
other physical abuse. Such attacks are always damaging to the targeted 
children but could have particularly devastating consequences for 
someone in such a fragile health situation. There are currently 
approximately 350 Palestinian children in Israeli jails and each year, 
nearly 700 Palestinian kids are brought before Israeli military courts 
with a conviction rate of 99.74 percent.

The Tamimi family has been targeted repeatedly for raids and arrests; 
while this has been the case for years, especially as their village has 
faced land theft and encirclement and even the theft of their water 
spring by the illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish, it has escalated 
even more since the imprisonment of Ahed and Nariman. On 23 February, 
Manal Tamimi reported 
<https://www.facebook.com/manal.tamimi.12/posts/1708771122479592> that 
her sons Osama andMohammed Tamimi 
were attacked in Ofer prison by Zionist guards. Both Osama and Mohammed 
were seized in recent attacks on the village. The next military court 
hearing for Ahed and Nariman Tamimi is scheduled for 11 March.

*Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network urges the widest 
actions to demand freedom for Mohammed Tamimi and all Palestinian 
prisoners and children behind bars. The ongoing international campaigns 
to free the Tamimis and all Palestinian prisoners must continue and grow 
to support the resistance throughout Palestine to ongoing Zionist 
colonial violence and mass arrests.*
