RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Many Palestinian and foreign activists suffered injuries when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) used excessive force to suppress the weekly marches held on Friday afternoon against settlement activities in different West Bank areas.
In Bethlehem, the IOF intercepted the march in Masarah village and fired tear gas grenades and rubber bullets to prevent the protestors from reaching the segregation wall, according to spokesman for the anti-wall popular committee Mohamed Berigeh.
Berigeh said that the protestors stressed, during their march, the need for expanding the activities held against Israel’s settlement expansion and its segregation wall.
A massive march was also held in Nabi Saleh village, northwest of Ramallah city. The protestors chanted slogans denouncing the meetings held recently by some Palestinian parties to normalize relations with the Israeli apartheid regime.
Many suffered injuries during the march when the IOF attacked them, firing tear gas grenades and rubber bullets.
The IOF also used force to subdue the protestors in the weekly march of Kar Qaddum village, who demand the opening of the main road of the village.
As the IOF were attacking the march, four kids survived an attempt by Israeli soldiers to arrest them during an ambush in nearby olive groves.
