Wednesday afternoon, five residents were arrested, two injured, after the Israeli army attacked a peaceful procession against the Separation Wall in the village of Mnezel, south of the West Bank city of Hebron.

Dozens of residents protested against annexing their lands in order to construct the Wall in the area.

The army deployed dozens of soldiers and border policemen, and attacked the residents who chanted slogans against the wall and land grab policies used by the Israeli army.

Soldiers attacked the residents as they approached a construction site, severely punched and clubbed them; two residents were injured, and five others were arrested.

A local reporter and cameraman identified as Abdul-Hafith al-Hashlamon, and Azmi al-Shiokhy, secretary general of the Popular front for the Liberation of Palestine were among five detained residents.
