A Breath of Relief Before the Next Strike

Hello from an Internet Cafe in Nablus...

Most of the Army withdrew from Nablus last night around 12:30am, and we've spent the day documenting the invasion's destruction and taking reports from victims and their families. The Army has announced that their operation is not over, so locals are bracing themselves for the next invasion, meanwhile trying to salvage some kind of normalcy to their daily lives. Today children went to school, and people rushed about, not exactly shell-shocked since it's not the first time they've been collectively imprisoned. Just another day in Occupied Palestine.

I and a few other internationals are staying in the city to continue
to take reports and be present when the soldiers return.

I will be on KPFA Flashpoints again today (interview archived online here: http://kpfa.org/archives/index.php?arch=18916).

In struggle,
Anna
