Peaceful marches against settlement and apartheid wall repressed

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) used on Friday their suppressive means to attack the peaceful marches against settlement and the segregation wall in the West Bank villages of Ni’lin and Masarah.

The Israeli troops as usual used tear gas grenades and rubber bullet to quell the marches and clashed with Palestinian villagers and foreign activists.

Several injuries, mostly from tear gas, were reported.

In a separate incident, Israeli troops, border guards, and policemen attacked on Friday afternoon foreign activists and Palestinians from Susya village near Al-Khalil city.

With the participation of multinational solidarity activists, dozens of villagers from Susya and nearby areas staged a march against the Israeli decision to confiscate their land and demolish their property.

Eyewitnesses told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that many participants in the march suffered severe suffocation cases from tear gas and injuries from physical assaults.

The Israeli troops also used dogs to disperse the protestors and threatened to use live ammunition if they came back.

The Israeli regime claims that Susya village is located within area C which is under its control, and intends to expand its settlements at the expense of Palestinians’ lands.

The Susya villagers were forcibly displaced from their native village Al-Qaryatain in 1948 and established themselves in the Arab ancient village of Susya, but later the Israeli occupation forced them out of this village too. Now they are living in a nearby area.

However, the villagers were not left alone and the Israeli regime kept harassing them and demolished most of their property and buildings in 2000 to punish them after a Jewish settler was killed inside a nearby settlement that had been built illegally on their land.
