Update: The body of Yaqub Abu al-Qi’an was released from the pathological institute of Abu-Kabir, and the funeral took place today at 12:30 without the restrictions that the police asked the court to enforce. May he rest in peace.
Today (21-Jan-2017) in Today (21-Jan-2017) in Umm al-Ḥīrān, during a solidarity visit, Raed Abu al-Qi’an asked us to spread the news about what happened in the village since Wednesday in the early morning. I hereby quote him. He spoke in Hebrew, and I translated to English so that our friends abroad may understand and further raise support for the Palestinian Bedouin struggle.
[I sat a little far from Raed Abu al-Qi’an, and missed a word here and there, which will be marked with three dots. The speech was not read, so I edited a little to make it more readable.]
