W. Bank peaceful marches against settlement met with fierce IOF attacks


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Friday afternoon quelled the West Bank peaceful marches protesting Israel’s violations against the Palestinians and its settlement activities.

Dozens of Palestinian and foreign activists suffered injuries when the IOF violently attacked the march organized in Masarah village to the south of Bethlehem.

The protestors marched from the center of the village to the segregation wall, carrying Palestinian flags and pictures of martyrs and prisoners. Some kids wore masks commemorating the horrors of Sabra and Shatila massacres.

In Bil’in village near Ramallah, four anti-wall activists, including a Swedish woman, suffered severe tear gas suffocation when their march was attacked upon their arrival at an area near the segregation wall.

The IOF also suppressed the Friday march in Nabi Saleh village, using tear gas grenades, skunk water and rubber bullets and other dispersal methods while the Palestinian activists responded by hurling stones.

Nabi Salih residents have hosted weekly demonstrations for three years in protest at the confiscation of the village’s lands and the takeover of their spring by the nearby Israeli settlement, Halamish.

Four Palestinian citizens were injured with rubber bullets and many others suffocated from tear gas in Khirbet Makhool hamlet when the IOF attacked the villagers along with foreign activists as they were trying to rebuild temporary homes for the displaced families.

All residents of Khirbet Makhool hamlet in the Jordan Valley are still homeless after the IOF demolished their village recently and later confiscated tents brought for them by the Red Cross.

UN official concerned about Jordan Valley attacks

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — UN humanitarian coordinator James Rawley said he was deeply concerned Friday after Israeli forces prevented assistance to Palestinians displaced from their village by Israel.

His remarks came after Israeli forces seized a vehicle carrying tents destined for Makhoul village, which was demolished Wednesday displacing several dozen Palestinians. The forces also confronted members of the humanitarian and diplomatic communities who were present on site, the official said.

“The United Nations and its partners remain committed to providing humanitarian assistance to populations in immediate need,” Rawley said in a statement.

“I call upon the Israeli authorities to live up to their obligations as occupying power to protect those communities under their responsibility, including to halt demolitions of Palestinian homes and property.”

He added: “The displacement of a whole Palestinian community in the occupied Palestinian territory is a very disappointing development at such a delicate moment where we look forward to positive measures on the ground.”

The Israeli military said Palestinians were to blame for instigating the incident.

An army spokeswoman said forces were implementing a supreme court decision and “contained the violence with riot dispersal means and detained Palestinians who were the main instigators.”

She added that “reports that foreign diplomats abused their diplomatic privilages are currently being reviewed.”
