Today in Nabi Saleh: Hundreds of activists commemorated the killings of Mustafa Tamimi and Rushdi Tamimi by Israeli army forces in a protest march to the main gate of the village. The Israeli army shot tear gas and rubber-coated bullets at demonstrators. Three activists were detained and later released.
On Thursday, the Israeli army announced that it was closing its investigation into the death of Mustafa Tamimi, who was shot in the face at close range with a tear gas canister almost exactly two years ago.
Palestinian activists at the demonstration also commemorated Nelson Mandela in the wake of his passing, with some dressing up as the late South African leader and many others holding signs with his likeness.
