Ambassadors Of Portugal, South Africa, Teargased Near Ramallah
Ambassadors of Portugal and South Africa were treated for the effects of teargas inhalation, in the central West Bank city of Ramallah, after Israeli soldiers fired gas bombs at dozens of local and international peace activists during the weekly nonviolent protest against the Wall and Settlements in Kufr Qaddoum village, near the Ramallah.
The two officials were participating in the weekly non-violent protest along with local residents and dozens of Israeli and international peace activists who marched on Friday towards the main gate that was sealed by the army, many years ago, blocking the main entrance of the village, the Ma'an News Agency reported.
