Israeli troops attack non-violent protesters in 5 West Bank villages
Seven protesters were abducted, and many others were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation when Israeli soldiers attacked on the weekly protests organized at the villages of al Nabi Saleh, Bil’in, and Nil’in, in the central West Bank and Kufer Qadum in the northern West Bank as well as Al Ma’ssara village in the southern West Bank.
Israeli troops abducted on Friday four international supporters and three local activists as they attacked the weekly anti wall and settlements protest at the village of Al Ma’ssara. Troops attacked the protest before leaving the village and used rifle butts and batons to force people back into the village.
