Dear friends,as you will be aware, my friend Bassem Tamimi was recently arrested for participating in a non-violent BDS action in a settlement in the Occupied West Bank. Bassem received 3 broken ribs and has been sentenced to four months imprisonment in an Israeli military occupation prison. Amnesty International has recognised Bassem as a "prisoner of conscience".
Please find below a video from Amnesty International about Bassem's arrest and includes an interview with Palestinian activist Nariman Tamimi, who is also Bassem's wife and Bassem before his arrest. Also below is a report from +972 on Bassem's sentencing. For more information on Bassem's arrest see my earlier posts.
