On Thursday morning, at 5:30am, 17-year-old Amir Abdallah was brutally arrested for being a part of these ongoing protests, as a common scare tactic the Israelis use to silence Palestinians. The occupation forces barged into his family’s home at 3:00am searching for Amir, breaking the glass fixtures on the front door for no apparent reason. Once inside, the occupation forces also turned the house upside down, turning over furniture, breaking closets and damaging multiple items within the home. This of course is not the first time, nor is this a rare occurrence; the Israelis are known for their destruction and obnoxious behavior when entering and searching Palestinian homes.
No charges or evidence against Amir were found and he has returned home the following day. Situations like these spark the Palestinian resistance against the ongoing injustices carried out by the Israelis. However, small or unsuccessful their efforts may seem, their resistance demonstrates their love for life and the will to live it in a safe and free Palestine.
