Updates on Palestine: June 10th 2021
June 4th: a group of Palestinians held a marathon from Sheikh Jarrah to Silwan, the two neighborhoods under threat of displacement. The IOF shot at and threw stun grenades at the runners, some from settlers houses.
June 5th: IOF soldiers arrest Palestinian Al Jazeera correspondent, Givara Budeiri, and break her hand. She gave an interview after her release saying the soldiers knew she was an Al Jazeera reporter and kicked her in the car because of it.
June 6th: IOF soldiers arrested Muna and Mohammed El Kurd, two of the leaders of the Save Sheikh Jarrah movement. Muna was taken to the door of the Moscobyie prison, known for tortuting Palestinians, before being released
June 7th: Israel's Attorney General will not intervene in the Sheikh Jarrah case, framing it as a real-estate dispute instead of a forced expusion. Officials from the Attorney General's office also said the families case is weak, and that "his legal opinion would not be able to prevent their pending eviction"
The IOF raided the village of Jenin, resulting in the death of three Palestinians: Adham Elaiwi, Tayseer Aysa and Jamil Amouri
Israeli police raided and shut down UHWC for six months, a key healthcare body for Palestinians. Personal note is that they use legal language (the shut down is a military order) to try to legitimize it as an estate action and not a genocidal act.
Israel's MK Itamar Ben-Gvir visited the Damascus Gate, even after being banned by the police. Several Palestinians came to protest and were met with stun grenades. 14 were arrested, including a child (video of the child being abducted)

Israel is building an illegal settlement in Beita and brutalizing the residents and burning down their olive trees, only livelihood of the village, as well as targetting ambulances who come to aid (source)
A short list of children arrested this last week: Nufuz Hammad, 14 year old (source), Mohammad & Saif Abu Khdair, both 17 years old, Oraib Abu Khdair, 18 year old, Batn-Alhawa, 16 year old (source), and this child, who was abducted for flying a Palestinian flag on his bike (source)
Don't look away from Palestine and amplify the voices of Palestinian people

Hey. It’s, uh, me. I–I miss you. I can’t get you out of my head. It’s uh, it’s very distracting. We said things to each other that were just the beginning. And we never quite, um–anyway, now you’re gone, and it just feels like it’s been forever. And I really need…I need to see you. I need to talk to you. I need to be with you in all of the ways that I’ve been dreaming of.
NEW AMSTERDAM, 3.14
