Young Palestinians in Qaryout, near Nablus, today, were planting olive saplings to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the murder of activist Rachel Corrie. They then sat down for a peaceful picnic. Watch what happens next…Those present were planting trees, cooking food and singing before the soldiers rushed in with their guns to disperse the peaceful gathering.
One man can be seen to faint, during the raid, and is carried to patch of land on a stretcher as soldiers threaten with their weapons and shove participants this way and that.
What happens next is unclear, as a panic begins to surface within the crowd, the camera shaky. An argument is heard to erupt over what is to become of the fainted man.
The scene ends with the young soldiers carrying the man away and, then, dropping him to the ground.
