Israeli soldiers clash with Palestinians
Israeli forces have clashed with Palestinians protesting against the construction of the apartheid wall and other Israeli policies.
On Friday, clashes erupted in two West Bank villages when Israeli soldiers fired tear gas to disperse the crowd, which caused a fire in olive groves.
Palestinians held rallies in the villages of Bilin and Nabi Saleh to protest Tel Aviv’s land confiscation and settlement plans.
Protesters set out toward the wall carrying Palestinian flags and calling for national unity to resist the Israeli occupation.
A Palestinian protestor was injured and six others were arrested.
On Thursday, Palestinians and foreign activists also demonstrated against Israel’s construction of an illegal apartheid wall in the West Bank.
Locals say the apartheid wall is being built on land the Israelis are confiscating from the Palestinians.
