Saturday, the first martyr in the West Bank fell: thirty-one year old Rushdi Tamimi, a police officer from the small village of Nabi Saleh, in the Ramallah district of the occupied West Bank. Sunday afternoon, over 400 people turned out in Ramallah, to pay their respects to the martyr, in a funeral march back to Tamimi’s village.

On Saturday, 17 November 2012, a small group of men and women from Nabi Saleh clashed with the Israeli army, protesting in solidarity against Israel’s current military offensive in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli army attempted to suppress the protest with an excessive amount of tear gas, rubber bullets and live ammunition. According to eyewitnesses, Rushdi was, first, shot in the back with a rubber coated steel bullet, causing him to fall to the ground. He was, then, shot again, with a live bullet, which entered through his hip into his stomach area.
