Protests in cooperation and coordination with south west bank committee
Israeli Occupation forces suppressed protests in solidarity with Gaza in south West Bank
A number of citizens in Beit Ommar town suffered suffocation after Friday prayers today, due to inhaling tear gas shot by occupation forces towards the protesters, during a peaceful protest in solidarity with Gaza.
The Israeli soldiers deliberately fired tear gas canisters at windows of citizens’ houses, which led to the escape of large number of citizens from their homes into the street to avoid suffocation from tear gas.
As well as the suppression of Almasara weekly protest and Aida refugee camp protest in solidarity with Gaza. Israeli occupation forces suppressed Almasara weekly protest that started from the village towards the expansion and annexation wall, the protest was attended by international solidarity activists.
The Israeli army used violence and force to break up the protest by preventing the protesters from reaching the main street, especially when they learned that other marches unannounced in Bethlehem. The activists managed to reach and block.
