9 injured as Israeli forces suppress march near Ramallah

Dec. 19, 2014 2:54 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 20, 2014 5:49 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Nine Palestinians were injured on Friday as Israeli forces suppressed a march in the Ramallah-area village of Turmusayya.

Demonstrators were attempting to set up a memorial for Ziad Abu Ein, a PA minister who died in the village on Dec. 10 after being assaulted by Israeli soldiers.

Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas at the demonstrators and detained four activists.

One demonstrator, Muhammad al-Khatib, reportedly had his arm broken while being arrested.

Officials from different political factions performed Friday prayers on land threatened by Israeli annexation and planted olive trees in the area.

Marchers set off from the village carrying portraits of Abu Ein.

The PA official was taking part in a tree-planting project in the village on the day that he died.

Medical sources told Ma'an that Abu Ein lost consciousness and that his heart stopped after being beaten by Israeli soldiers and inhaling tear gas.
