On Saturday, Israeli soldiers attacked dozens of Palestinians, nonviolently protesting the illegal colonialist activities and escalating military violations, in the at-Tiwana village in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Fuad Al-Amour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Hebron, said the Palestinians nonviolently marched at the main entrance of at-Tiwana.

He added that the procession was organized by Land Defense Committees in Masafer Yatta and surrounding areas and was attended by many social figures and international peace activists.

Al-Amour also said that the soldiers fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades at the nonviolent protesters immediately after their started marching toward the lands threatened with the illegal annexation.

It is worth mentioning that the area has also been subject to escalating attacks and violations by the illegal colonialist settlers, and just a few days ago, the Israeli army declared the area “a closed zone designated for military training.”
