Israeli Occupation and the Arrest of Bilal Tamini in Nabi-Saleh PopularStruggleCC, Apr 23, 2012
An Israeli military court has released a Palestinian journalist on bail after seeing this video showing him rushing to the aid of his wife at a West Bank demonstration, a popular committee said on Sunday. Bilal Tamimi, an independent journalist, was detained by Israeli forces at a popular protest in Ramallah-district village Nabi Saleh on Friday, April 20th. Granting bail to Palestinians imprisoned under Israel's military system is unusual, and Tamimi intends to sue for false arrest and assault.
