On Saturday, Israeli soldiers injured dozens of Palestinians during a nonviolent procession against the illegal Israeli colonialist activities in the Masafer Yatta area, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Fuad al-Amour, the Protection and Steadfastness Committees Coordinator in Masafer Yatta, said dozens of Palestinians and international solidarity activists marched in the ar-Rakeez while carrying Palestinian flags and chanting for liberation and independence.

Al-Amoud added that the soldiers attacked the nonviolent protesters with gas bombs and concussion grenades in addition to kicking and clubbing many.

The Palestinians hold weekly nonviolent processions in Masafer Yatta, subject to escalating Israeli violations, including the illegal colonialist activities on stolen Palestinian lands and a recent Israeli court ruling confiscating large areas of Palestinian lands for military training.

The ruling poses an immediate threat to fourteen Palestinian communities that would be isolated and depopulated, in addition to the immediate danger due to the military drills.
