Bethlehem - Ma'an - Three people including one at least one international were arrested in Ni'lin, near Ramallah in the central West Bank, on Wednesday at a peaceful demonstration against the separation wall. The protest was organized and participated in solely by women.

The demonstration started at 11:30 when the women made their way to the construction site of the wall carrying banners. They were met with fierce resistance from the Israeli forces who fired tear gas at the crowd.

One international on the demonstration said, "The use of force was totally disproportionate, we put our hands up to show we had no weapons, but the soldiers continued to assault us."

There have been regular twice weekly demonstrations at Ni'lin in recent months but this is the first women only protest. Organizers say it will become a regular event.
