West Bank village defiant after Israeli crackdown

A Palestinian demonstrator throws a molotov cocktail towards Israeli security forces during clashes in the Palestinian town of Qabatiya, in the north of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, on February 5, 2016With a four-day lockdown and economic sanctions, Israel cracked down hard on the West Bank village of Qabatiya after three of its sons killed a policewoman in a Jerusalem attack. “Here we have resisted every occupation,” mayor Mahmoud Kamel told AFP, citing centuries of Ottoman imperial rule, followed by nearly 30 years of British control and Israel’s capture of the territory from Jordan in the 1967 Six-Day War. Among the latest to die were three young men from some of Qabatiya’s largest families.
