Four Palestinians injured at Ni'lin anti-wall demonstration

Nov. 28, 2008 3:57 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2008 3:57 P.M.)
Ramallah - Ma'an - Four Palestinians were reportedly shot by Israeli forces at an anti-wall march in the West Bank village of Ni'lin, near Ramallah, on Friday.

After Friday prayers, demonstrators gathered near lands threatened with confiscation, shouting slogans and demanding help for 120 families whose lands are to be confiscated.

As protesters neared the construction site, Israeli forces opened fire "from close range" with tear-gas canisters "fired directly at protesters," as well as rubber-coated bullets, according to a statement received by Ma'an.

Four injured Palestinians were taken to a hospital in Ramallah, the statement added.
