Rabid Dog israeli Forces Open Fire on Nakba Day Protests
Israeli soldiers fired tear gas, rubber and live bullets at Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip on Friday, wounding at least 21 people, medics and security sources said.
Clashes took place near Ramallah and farther north in Nablus, after a new Israeli cabinet took office and as Palestinians marked 67 years since the Nakba, or “catastrophe,” that befell them when the Zionist entity was established in 1948.
At a demonstration outside Ofer military prison near the West Bank administrative center of Ramallah, dozens of protesters stoned soldiers who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets, an AFP correspondent said.
In Gaza, which is still recovering nine months after last summer’s devastating Israeli war, Zionist troops on the border fired live rounds at Nakba Day protesters, wounding four, the enclave’s interior ministry medical spokesperson said.
After the Zionist entity’s establishment in 1948, more than 760,000 Palestinians — estimated today to number around 5.5 million with their descendants — were violently expelled from their homes, with the catastrophe marked every May 15.
