At the weekly demonstration in Nabi Salih, two Palestinian women stand their ground in the face of the infamous "skunk truck." The skunk truck is a mounted water cannon that sprays a foul smelling liquid at high pressures.

The village of Nabi Salih, home to over 500 Palestinians, holds weekly demonstrations protesting the illegal confiscation of their lands by Israelis in the settlement Halamish. The Israeli Occupation Forces respond frequently with excesses of force, as the video here demonstrates.
