Ni'lin/Ramallah - Ma'an - Five Palestinians were injured after the Israeli army fired rubber coated metal bullets on a peaceful demonstration in the West Bank village of Ni'lin.

Israeli soldiers fired tear gas bombs at a Dubai TV crew interviewing Salam Jamal Kan'an, the young girl who filmed the shooting of Ashraf Abu Rahmah, who was bound and blindfolded, earlier this month. Salam was describing the intentional shooting incident to the television crew.

The army fired dozens of tear on gas bombs on Salam's family during the interview. During the attack Dubai TV reporter Mohamad As-Sayid along with his cameramen were suffocated with tear gas.

The demonstration made its way to the construction site of the separation wall at noon where they performed the Friday prayers. On their way to the site, Israeli soldiers tried to prevent the crowd from reaching the area.

Youth threw stones at two Israeli military jeeps in the area and attempted to block the access road to the wall's construction site by piling rocks and burning tires about two kilometers away from the protest site.

Many young Palestinians gathered near the adjacent illegal Israeli settlement of Hashmon'im and chanted slogans against settlements. They hurled stones and damaged more than five settlers' cars passing as they drove past on the "settlers only" road.

Salah Al-Khawajah, media spokesperson of the popular campaign of Ni'lin, said that among those injured by rubber coated bullets are A'qel Srur (who was injured for the ninth time), Khamees A'meerah (who was injured for the forth time), Hilal Abed-al Qader Al-Khawaja (who was also injuredfor the forth time), Mohamad Noor Qahush, and Hasan Al-Haj Khaleel A'meerah.

Al-Khawajah added that Israeli soldiers prevented the Dubai TV crew from reporting on the incident and forced them out of the village.
