Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Wednesday, September, 27, 2017.
Troops attack a nonviolent protest and destroy water pipelines. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Israeli soldiers attacked, Wednesday, a nonviolent procession against the escalating Israeli violations against the Palestinians and their lands in al-Baqâa Meadow, south of Tubas, in northeastern West Bank, wounding at least fifteen, and abducted two Palestinians, including a journalist.
The protesters marched carrying Palestinian flags, and chanting against the ongoing Israeli occupation, and escalating violations.
the deputy governor of Tubas, Ahmad al-Asâad, and four other Palestinians, had to be moved to hospitals for further treatment, after the soldiers assaulted them, local sources reported.
Moreover, Israeli soldiers destroyed, on Wednesday evening, a water pipeline and bulldozed an agricultural road in âAtouf village, south of Tubas, in addition to confiscating a tractor and a water truck in the West Bankâs Northern Plains.
Israel controls all water resources, and frequently disconnects water supplies, an issue that forces the Palestinians to buy water, which is delivered to them by water trucks, for higher prices than they would normally pay if they had constant running water.
In other news, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday at dawn, several Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank, searched many homes and abducted thirteen Palestinians, in addition to confiscating two cars and photographing homes.
