Ni'lin: day after Israeli soldier stoned, 2 arrested, others sent to interrogation

Sept. 22, 2008 10:14 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 22, 2008 10:14 A.M.)
Bethlehem/Ramallah - Ma'an - Israeli forces detained brothers from the central West Bank village of Ni'lin during a raid on the village Monday morning.

Those detained are named as Hussein Nafi and Saddam Nafi. A number of warrants were handed to young men of the village, summoning them to Israeli intelligence offices for interrogation.

The invading soldiers fired incendiary bombs (designed to start fires) and tear gas canisters at the Ar-Rafati mosque in the village burning carpets on the floor.

Earlier on Monday Israeli sources reported that one of their soldiers was lightly injured Sunday evening after his patrol car was pelted with stones as it drove through the village of Ni'lin.

The soldier was transferred to hospital for medical treatment.

Sources added that Israeli army apprehended what they called "wanted activists" from Ni'lin suspected of incitement for violence during anti-wall demonstrations in the town in the early hours on Monday.

Coordinator of the popular campaign against the separation wall Ahid Al-Khawaja said "Israeli soldiers are maneuvering in order to scare us so that we stop defending our lands which are being confiscated for establishment of the separation wall."

Ni'lin is the site of weekly protests involving locals, Israeli and international activists who are against the confiscation of land for the building of the separation wall. Palestinian farmers have been cut off from their fields, destroying patterns of movement and livelihoods.
