YOUTH AGAINST INVASION

ON THE SOIL OF OUR HOMELAND 

FROM JENIN TO GAZA

 YOUTH AGAINST INVASION is a space to hear the voices of Palestinian young people (18 - 25) who live, study or work in Jenin.

ON THE SOIL OF OUR HOMELAND, FROM JENIN TO GAZA, is a collation of responses written in light of Israel's genocide in Gaza and the continued attacks across Palestine.

I In particular, the writers have focused on the three-day invasion in Jenin Camp and the city from the 12th -14th December. It was the most intensive invasion since 2002. The attack included drone strikes, bombing and Israeli soldiers shooting, ransacking homes, desecrating mosques and terrorising the local population. Twelve Palestinians were killed, and the army took at least one hundred people. 

The Freedom Theatre was ransacked, and the equipment was destroyed and taken. Three members, Artistic Director  Ahmed Tobasi, Producer Mustafa Sheta and recently graduated student and poet Jamal Abu Joas were taken by the army. Tobasi was released, but Mustafa and Jamal remain detained.
