Sulaiman Khatib
Co-Founder and Co-Director @Combatants for Peace
Souli is co-founder and Managing Director of Combatants for Peace. He comes from a nationalistic family from Hizma, near Jerusalem. At 12, he joined the Palestinian national freedom struggle by rioting at school and throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the Israeli army. In 1986, just before the first Intifada, when he was 14, Souli was sentenced to 15 years in jail. He served 10 and a half years. In jail, he received most of his education in what became known as the “Revolutionary University”, where Palestinians in Israeli prisons fought through hunger-strikes and other nonviolent means. After his release from jail in 1997, Souli became Office Manager in Fatah’s Jerusalem district office. At the start of the Second Intifada, he was among those who called for nonviolent resistance. Souli and Chen Alon, co-founders of Combatants for Peace, were on the list of considerations for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2017.
