Israeli forces attack protesters in Al-Ma'sara

Bethlehem - Ma'an - The Popular Campaign Against the Wall (PCAW) organized a demonstration in the village of Al-Ma'sara in the Bethlehem district, to protest against Israeli expansionist plans. The demonstration took place on Friday.

The Palestinian National Initiative (PLI), political party headed by Mustapha Al-Barghouthi PLC member, attended Friday's rally to support popular protests against the Israeli occupation.

As the protesters moved towards the land that will be confiscated for the construction of the separation wall, Israeli soldiers cut the area off with barbed wire and attacked protesters with tear gas, sound bombs and rubber coated metal bullets.

Mazen Al-A'za, coordinator of PCAW said that the protest activities will continue despite the oppressive tactics of Israeli forces.

The Bethlehem district, said Al-A'za, is one of the worst affected by the increasing expansion of settlements and the destructive path of the separation wall. More than 80 thousand settlers occupy the district, and the wall cuts Bethlehem and surrounding areas off from Jerusalem.
