Last night, Occupation forces arrested Naji Tamimi, the coordinator of the popular committee in al Nabi Saleh from his home.
According to statements from local sources, Occupation forces entered the village on foot, followed by three military vehicles. At 3:00 AM, they raided the house of Naji Tamimi where they arrested him. Soldiers also raided the house of another popular committee leader, but did not find him in his home.
The Nabi Saleh Popular Committee has been organizing protests for more than a year against the nearby Halamesh settlement. Only yesterday, settlers tried to raid the village, but were fought off by local residents.
