IOF violence fails to stop Friday marches against wall and settlement
RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Despite the tear gas attacks and unjustified violence used by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF), thousands of Palestinian and foreign activists participated on Friday afternoon in their peaceful marches against Israel’s wall and settlement activities in different West Bank areas.
Dozens of Palestinian and foreign activists in Masarah village, south of Bethlehem, sustained tear gas injuries as they approached an area near the segregation wall.
In Kafr Qaddum village to the east of Qalqiliya city, the IOF also subdued dozens of Palestinian and foreign protestors demanding an end to the Israeli closure of the main road in the village.
Palestinian and foreign protesters also clashed with Israeli soldiers who targeted them with a hail of tear gas grenades in the villages of Bil’in and Nabi Saleh near Ramallah city.
During these marches, the protestors chanted different slogans condemning the Israeli violations in the occupied Palestinian lands and calling for restoring the national unity and resisting the occupation.
Some of the banners that were carried by the protestors denounced the Israeli violations at the Aqsa Mosque and others expressed solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners, and with the Egyptian and Syrian peoples.
