Nabi Saleh Protest - WAFA News

Eyewitnesses reported that the soldiers fired gas bombs, rubber-coated metal bullets, and concussion grenades at the nonviolent protesters as soon as they arrived at Palestinian lands Israel intends to illegally confiscate in order to expand its illegal settlements.

Palestinian medics provided treatment for dozens of protesters who suffocated after inhaling gas fired by the army, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) reported.

The Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in Nabi Saleh called on all Palestinians to unite against the Israeli occupation, and to increase their nonviolent resistance against this illegal occupation, the illegitimate settlements and the Annexation Wall.

It also called for more solidarity activities with all Palestinian detainees illegally held by Israel, and facing ongoing aggression and violations.
