Oppressed Persons May Legally Resist Occupation Forces

That was the case for us in Mosul, Iraq.

Israeli Occupation soldiers entered her home in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh using force and scooped the child up, and after bullying her, shoved her in a vehicle and threw her into prison with adult offenders in the Ofer prison. Nabi Salih is a small Palestinian village in the Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate in the central West Bank, located 20 kilometers northwest of Ramallah. It has a population of 600.

This child has not committed a crime. She has acted in self defence by slapping a soldier in the face pursuant to numerous attacks on herself and her family including younger siblings. Her younger sibling was about to be assailed and she slapped a soldier and identified herself as her sibling’s protector. She has the right to do that.

Long ago, it was settled that resistance and even armed struggle against a colonial occupation force is not just recognised under international law but specifically endorsed.

In accordance with international humanitarian law, wars of national liberation have been expressly embraced, through the adoption of Additional Protocol I (Volume 1125) to the Geneva Conventions of 1949 (pdf), as a protected and essential right of occupied people everywhere.  – Stanley L. Cohen
