10 injured in non-violent weekly protests Friday
Ten civilians were injured as Israeli troops attacked the weekly nonviolent protests organized at a number of West Bank communities. This week, protests were reported in the villages of al-Nabi Salleh, Bil’in, and Nil’in in the central West Bank, as well as al-Ma’ssara in the south.
Seven civilians were injured and scores treated for tear gas inhalation as troops attacked the weekly protest in the village of Nabi Saleh, central West Bank. On Friday morning, villagers and their international and Israeli supporters gathered near land where Israel plans to build a new settlement. Troops attacked villages as soon as they started to march. The protest ended with clashes between local youth and troops that invaded the village.
