Israeli security sources reported on Tuesday that soldiers arrested last night a Palestinian resident who bit a soldier during a protest against the Wall in Bil’in village, west of Ramallah in the West Bank.
The incident took place ten days ago after soldiers violently attacked peaceful protesters against the annexation Wall in Bil’in village.
Soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition, gas bombs and concussion grenades at Israeli, Palestinian and international peace activists, and arrested some of them.
One of the soldiers attempted to arrest a resident identified as Adnan Khattab, 24, from the nearby village of Beit Siera, but as the soldier violently forced Khattab onto the ground and pressed his baton against his neck, Khattab managed to bite the soldier and broke two of his figures.
After biting the soldier, Khattab fled the scene until he was arrested on Tuesday.
The Israeli army and security forces considered Khattab as one of “the most wanted Palestinians”, but for the Palestinians he became the hero who bit the Israeli weapons and assaults against peaceful protesters who struggle peacefully against the annexation Wall that swallows the Palestinian land and annexes the sources of livelihood of the residents.
An Israeli military sources described Khattab as one of the anti-wall protesters who defied military orders and entered a closed military zone; the closed military zone is the Palestinian orchards threatened by Israel’s annexation Wall.
