Israeli army attacks a peaceful anti wall demonstration in Al-Ma'sarah

Aug. 22, 2008 4:35 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 22, 2008 4:35 P.M.)

Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli soldiers attacked a non violent demonstration against the illegal separation wall in the village of Al-Ma'sarah near the West bank city of Bethlehem on Friday.

Residents of the village were joined by activists from the Palestinian National Initiative, the Palestinian Struggle Front and Israeli and international peace activists.

The coordinator of the Popular Campaign Against the Aall, Mazen Al-Aza, said that Friday's "rally commemorated the 39th anniversary of the burning the Al-Aqsa mosque and denounces Israeli expansion policies."

Al-Aza added that Israeli soldiers prevented the rally from reaching the lands that are to be confiscated for construction of the wall, and fired live rounds of ammunition and sound bombs.

Two children were injured with shrapnel and dozens suffered from tear gas inhalation

The Popular committee said that the road closed down earlier Friday in the town of Al-Walaja will be reopened by force next week. The action will be a collective one showing the rejection of Israeli policies by local Palestinians.
