#443Blocked | Four Palestinians Injured North Of Jerusalem

Tuesday October 16, 2012 14:25 by Saed Bannoura – IMEMC News

Four Palestinians were injured, on Tuesday, after the Israeli army attacked nonviolent protesters at the Latrun-Jerusalem Road (Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Road), north of occupied East Jerusalem, referred to by Israel as Road #443. One resident was kidnapped.

The soldiers attacked the nonviolent protesters with batons and pepper spray causing at least four injuries.

The wounded residents were identified as Ashraf Abu Rahma, Mohammad and his brother Ahmad Al-Khatib, and an international solidarity activist.

Ashraf Abu Rahma was violently attacked by the soldiers and was kidnapped after he was wounded.
A number of protesters managed to place a poster that reads “Stop Settler Terrorism” on a military jeep partially blocking its windshield.

Another protester raised a Palestinian flag in the middle of Road 443, temporarily stopping Israeli traffic in a symbolic move that is meant to express the illegal Israeli segregation policies, including its policies of settler-only roads.

The nonviolent procession was held to protest the ongoing and escalating attacks carried out by extremist Israeli settlers against Palestinians, their orchards, farmlands and holy sites.

Several nonviolent protesters from Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron, in addition to international peace activists, participated in the protest.

Abdullah Abu Rahma, a nonviolent activist against the Wall and settlements in Bil’in village near Ramallah, stated that nonviolent protests are a legitimate right, and expressed his rejection to the ongoing Israeli violations, and the escalating settler attacks.

The Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements denounced the increasing attacks carried out by Israeli soldiers and settlers against the residents and their property, and stated that extremist settlers are stepping up their attacks against the villages, and recently uprooted and burnt Palestinian farmlands and orchards.
