We condemn the imprisonment of the young Palestinian, Waed Tamimi, by Israeli forces
The World Federation of Teachers Unions FISE denounces the barbarity of the murderous Israeli state, which arrests and imprisons young pupils for defending their homes.
On Thursday, May 10th, Israeli special forces invaded the Tammi family home in the village Nambi Saleh, Palestine, and arrested Waed Tamimi, 18 years old, brother of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who, along with her mother, remains imprisoned in Israeli prisons.
The Israeli killer, having become audacious due to the US support, and other imperialist governments, escalates violence and authoritarianism against the heroic Palestinian people. Israel arrests and imprisons young children, pupils, students, young fighters who defend their homes.
FISE stands by the Palestinian people in his righteous struggle for his own independent state, with East Jerusalem as its capital city. We demand the immediate release of all Palestinian political prisoners and members of the Tamimi family.
