|Subject: IOF troops quell Palestinian peaceful march Sun Sep 26, 2010 2:15 am|| |
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked a Palestinian peaceful march in Beit Ummar village north of Al-Khalil on Saturday that was protesting the IOF decision blocking Palestinian farmers from cultivating their land near the settlement of Karmei Tzur.
The march, organized by the national committee against the wall and settlements, headed to the Palestinian lands where the farmers are not allowed to reach.
Participants in the march hoisted placards protesting the decision and other posters displaying solidarity with Palestinian prisoners and with Silwan suburb in occupied Jerusalem.
The IOF soldiers assaulted the participants with their rifle butts bruising secretary of the national committee Ahmed Abu Hashem, 42, all over his body.
Two foreign activists were also hurt in the assault and a 12-year-old child was hit with a teargas bomb in his foot.
The troops arrested a French solidarity activist and detained a cameraman for an hour.
