Dozens injured at Ni'lin demonstration

Ramallah - Ma'an - Dozens of demonstrators were injured in the West Bank village of Ni'in on Thursday when Israeli forces responded violently to a march marking the death of Yousif Amira who was shot and killed by Israeli forces last week.

On Tuesday night Israeli forces stormed the house of Zurul Amira and detained a member of the Popular Committee against the Israeli wall in the village, Salah Tayeh.

On Thursday the demonstrators approached the Israeli construction vehicles, hoping to block their work on the Israeli separation wall. They were showered with rubber-coated metal bullets and sound bombs.

The coordinator of the Ni'lin committee Ahed Al-Khawaja said on Thursday that the Israeli forces took advantage of a mourning period in the village to push work forward on the wall, which local officials say will result in the confiscation of much of the town's farmland.

Al-Khawaja said that the Israeli attacks would not stop the demonstrations, but rather increase them.
